Detective Inspector Diboro, prosecuting told the court the alleged culprit resides at Jerusalem, a suburb of Techiman in the Brong Ahafo Region.
On 3rd February this year around 5pm, the accused called the victim and lured her into his abode. The accused forcibly had sexual intercourse with the victim and further warned her not to disclose her traumatic ordeal to anyone, threatening her with death as a consequence.
The victim could not contain the pain and eventually told her father about her predicament.
A complaint was lodged at the Techiman Police Station which led to the accused’s arrest. The victim was issued with police medical form; the act was later confirmed by the Holy Family hospital.
The suspect was arraigned before court but pleaded not guilty to the charges leveled against him.
Meanwhile the case has been adjourned to 20th February for further hearings.
