The court presided over by Mrs. Abena Oppong Adjin- Doku was informed by the prosecution that the complainant is a Security man at East Legon while the accused person live in his tailoring shop at North Legon, near Madina Zongo.

Prosecuting Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Agnes Boafo said in February this year at about 2:30 pm the victim and her friend, a witness in the case accompanied a certain woman to wash clothes for a client in the accused person’s area.

On their way home prosecution said the victim and her friend decided to pass by the accused person’s shop to collect pieces of cloth for needle work at home.

Attey allowed the victim and her friend into his kiosk and he proposed love to the victim.

Attey then lured the victim into the inner chamber of his kiosk and had sex with the victim while her friend waited outside.

When the victim came out she informed her friend about her ordeal. The victim and her friend hurried home and informed two other witnesses in the matter.

On February 24 this year, the victim’s father got wind of the victim’s ordeal and upon confirmation the matter was reported to the Police.

A medical report form was issued to the victim to seek medical attention and the accused was subsequently charged.
