A female final year student of the Saint Louis Senior High School has been subjected to rape by an unknown person. The incidence, as confirmed by the Ashanti Regional Police Relations Officer, Mr Godwin Ahianyo (ASP), suggests the culprit drove the victim to a nearby plantation and raped her.
Reports indicate the incidence occurred around 10:30 pm on Saturday, 22nd August 2020. Narrating the incidence, Mr Ahianyo suggested that the victim had gone into one of the classrooms to study when the culprit intruded the premises, beat her up upon her resistance and subsequently dragged her into the plantation located on the campus.
He further noted that the culprit might have jumped over the wall of the school to commit the act since the institution is gated. The incidence is said to have left the victim and the entire study body, traumatised. She has since been taken to the hospital for medical attention and is said to be doing well.
The victim also sustained wounds after the culprit beat her because she resisted the act. Mr Ahianyo noted that the Police hadn’t arrested anyone in connection to the act. However, investigations are still on-going, and the Police are working hard to bring the culprit to book.
He, however, added that the culprit maybe someone close to the school who knowns the surrounding of the institution thoroughly. Saint Louis Senior High School is an all-girls second cycle institution located at Oduom in the Ashanti Region of the country.
