A six-year-old girl is fighting for her life at a hospital in Takoradi after she was defiled by a 20-year-old man.
Her anus and vagina were damaged in the process. Doctors are struggling to operate her to save her life.
Starr News’ Western regional correspondent Emmanuel Ohene Gyan reports that the victim and the perpetrator of the crime Isaac Nana Kwasi Baffoe live with the same guardian at Kwesimintim.
Baffoe has been arrested and is currently in police custody. He would be arraigned before court next week.
Speaking to Starr News, the Kwesimintsim District Police Commander, DSP Thomas Bayor explained that on August 12, the mother of the victim left her in the care of Baffoe to enable her to run some errands in town.
Baffoe immediately took advantage of the situation and defiled the young girl damaging her vagina and anus in the process.
DSP Bayor added that the victim started shouting which attracted neighbours to rush to her rescue.
Baffoe was arrested and sent to the Police station for interrogation.
