The Eastern Regional Police Command has announced that they have arrested three (3) more people in relation to the recent robbery that took place in New Juabeng.

These arrests brings to the number of people apprehended by the police on this issue to 6.

The Eastern Regional Police Command spokesperson ASP Ebenezer Tetteh said, "This was a robbery attack that took place at a gas filling station. They were so merciless that they actually brutalized their victims because the information was that attempted resisting the robber so they were subject to severe beatings.”

Some residents in the Okorase area of Koforidua were rob of their possessions and valuable items by armed robbers on Tuesdday.

ASP Ebenezer Tetteh also said, "We want to encourage residents to continue to volunteer vital information that will lead to the arrest of the other syndicate. We believe that there are still other groups who are operating in the municipality.”

He appealed to community members, private companies and benevolent individuals in the Eastern Region to assist the police with vehicles and motorbikes to enable them to patrol the new areas intensively to reduce the high robbery attacks as the police are under-resourced.
