The Sunyani District Court B has remanded the police officer who sexually harassed a lady in a car last week.
Suspect, Lance Corporal Victor Antwi Yeboah was captured in a viral video touching the thighs of a lady inappropriately in a car as the victim screamed, ” Why are you touching me?”
His arrest follows the Service’s preliminary investigations into the video in which the police officer is seen continually touching the woman’s exposed thighs, saying; “you’re naked”, despite her plea for the former to stop.
Lance Corporal Yeboah is facing charges of assault contrary to Section 84 of the Criminal Offences Act 29 and indecent assault contrary to Section 103 of the Criminal Offences Act 29.
The court presided over by his Worship Eric Denning remanded the police officer into police custody on Monday to reappear on Wednesday December 1, 2021.
Investigations by the Police Service have revealed that the said police officer is stationed at the Regional Operations Unit at the Bono Regional Police Command.
The Service has promised to offer “psychological care and trauma therapy” to the woman involved.
“We unreservedly apologize to the affected woman in particular for what she experienced and to the public at large since the matter affects the very moral foundation of our country,” the statement added.
