An 18 year old teenager, Atta Kofi Kyei aka ‘Fresh boy’ who the police describe as a hardened criminal has been arrested.

The suspect is believed to be behind attacks on students on the University of Ghana Legon campus in Accra.

Speaking with the media, the Deputy Accra Regional Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police Mr Timothy Y. Bongo, said Kyei who has terrorized students on the university campus by snatching ladies’ hand bags and in some cases sexually assaulting his victims, was arrested on January 10, 2015 after he had attacked a female student.

He said Kyei emerged from the bush on the Pentagon-TF stretch of the road on the university campus and snatched the bag of the victim.

After snatching the bag, Mr Bonga said, Kyei bolted into the bush with the bag, which contained GH¢2,000 and the personal belongings of the student.

“The victim shouted for help and quickly reported the incident to a police visibility point close by. The police personnel quickly followed up to the location of the incident,” he added.

The police found the suspect about to jump on a motorbike on the main road and pursued him, but Kyei abandoned the motorcycle and flee away.

The police then seized the motorcycle, he added.

He said a man reported at the station and claimed ownership of the motorcycle, three days after.

Mr Bongo said the man was immediately arrested and, upon interrogation, he led the police to Kyei’s hideout.

Kyei subsequently led the police to the bush where the victim’s handbag was retrieved
