The oldest among them is 25, while the others are 19, 18, 17, 17 and the girl is 16.

They were accused of pulling a locally manufactured gun on one Okofo Dartey, who was in charge of a black KIA Picanto car with trade plate number DP 7412-22, and robbed him of his money, Itel and Infinix phones, a black polish, and a shaving machine when his car developed a fault at about 9:50 pm off the Nsoatre-Berekum Highway near the Roman Catholic Church on January 7.

The complainant, the 43-year-old driver, told the Nsoatre Police that while relaxing in his car when it developed a fault, Vincent Kyeremeh, Andrews Kyeremeh, Prince Kyeremeh and Takyi Richmond appeared and pulled a locally manufactured gun and threatened to kill him if he refused to surrender whatever items he had on him.

They took the money, phones and other items and went away. The driver consequently raised an alarm and together with community members, Mohammed Fayed and Collins Dartey, gave them a hot chase, arrested them and sent them to the Nsoatre Police Station and lodged a complaint.

As a result, some police officers together with the complainant were dispatched to the scene where the complainant identified Isabella Agyeiwaa and Edmund Asare as part of the gang and were all rounded up.
