A 30-year-old car washer at Nuaso, a suburb of Odumase-Krobo, Kudjo Angmorteh has been sentenced to 84 months imprisonment in hard labour for unlawful entry, attempting to commit a crime (stealing) and causing unlawful harm.

 

 

Angmorteh, who pleaded guilty to all the charges, was sentenced to 60, 36 and 84 months in respect of count one, two and three, to run concurrently. The Odumase Krobo Circuit judge, Asmah Akwasi Asiedu, who presided over the case, described Angmorteh’s action as very barbaric when he pleaded with the court for leniency.

The Prosecutor, Chief Inspector John Akuetteh, told the court that on December 13, 2014, at about 2 a.m., the complainant, Samuel Nartey, a civil engineer, was asleep in his room when  Angmorteh barged in wielding a machete in an attempt to steal from the room. 

 

The prosecutor said Angmorteh attacked Nartey and inflicted machete wounds on the left side of his head and his left knee, which made him bleed profusely. Mr Akuetteh said Nartey raised an alarm while holding Angmorteh and some witnesses in the case came to rescue him.

 

Nartey was rushed to the Agomanya St Martin De- Porres Hospital for treatment and Angmorteh was arrested and sent to Nuaso Police station, where he was rearrested. During police interrogation, Angmorteh admitted having inflicted machete wounds on Nartey in an attempt to escape arrest.
