According to Mr Acquaye the youth pounds on Ali when they were told by the victim that the suspect and his accomplice (name withheld for technical reasons), had snatched his phone, collected his wallet which contained GH¢15 and his wedding ring, after Ali had threatened him with a gun and a knife.

 Ali was found wearing the victim’s wedding ring on one of his fingers while he was being beaten by the residents, he added.
