Police in the Ashanti region have arrested two armed robbers who have been terrorising residents of Apire, Heman, Santasi, Patase and its surrounding areas in the Kumasi metropolis.

The suspects are:Sampson Amoako Addai aka Kwame Odame, 23, unemployed; and Atakora Amaniampon, 25,a Shoe Maker.

Their accomplices, Kojo aka Papa and Emmanuel are currently at large.

Addressing a press briefing at the regional police headquarters in Kumasi on Monday, 13 May 2019, Deputy Regional Police Commander, DCOP Fred Adu Anim, told the media that the suspects have been embarking on series of residential robberies in the aforementioned areas in the Kumasi metropolis at gunpoint.

He said their modus operandi is that they cut the burglar proof of the windows of their victims to gain access into their rooms and tie the victims up and rob them of their personal effects, sums of money, mobile phones and take their wedding rings as well.

On Thursday, 2 May 2019, DCOP Anim said the two suspects and their accomplices currently on the run in one of their robbery attacks armed with a locally made pistol and machete went to a boutique near the police training school at Patase and attacked the owner of the boutique and two sales representatives and robbed them of cash sum of GHS3,750; mobile phones and other men's ware which were displayed in the boutique for sale.

He said the suspects later inflicted machete wounds on one of the victims before escaping in a waiting Opel Astra taxi driven by one of the suspects whose name was only given as driver, a resident of Bantama in Kumasi.

DCOP Anim said the two suspects currently in police custody have admitted to committing those crimes in their respective cautioned statements and have led the police to retrieve some of the items they stole.

In another development, a 33-year-old car snatcher, Kojo Korankye, has also been arrested by the regional police command.
