3-year-old girl defiled in Central Region; suspect on the run

A 3-year-old girl has been allegedly defiled at Akufo Krodua, a community near Bawjiase in the Central Region, just weeks after a 4-year old reportedly suffered a similar fate at Assin Adedientam in the same region.

The victim was initially given medical treatment at the Bawjiase Health Centre, and was later referred to the Agona Swedru Government Hospital for further treatment.

But for the kindness of a medical doctor of the Swedru Government Hospital who offered to attend to the girl without any payment, the victim would have been denied the treatment and endorsement of her medical form, as her parents could not raise the required fee for the cost of the endorsement.

The victim was alleged to have suffered the callous act from an 18-year old neighbour named Yavor on Thursday, October 2, and the case was reported to the police on October 4.

The Central Regional police have mounted a search to arrest the suspect who is currently on the run.

The police are also counting on the general public for any information on Yavor for his arrest and prosecution.

The Central Region has been inundated with cases of rape and defilement recently, and recent visits to the region by both the Gender and Social Protection Minister, Otiko Afisa Djaba, and the Interior Minister, Ambrose Derry, sought to assure the nation that their respective Ministries are working on curbing the menace.
