Kumasi July 21, GNA –
A 28-year old driver arrested by the police for alleged defilement of a minor
was on Friday put before a Kumasi Circuit Court and remanded.

Francis Donkor has
additionally been charged with threat of death and would make his next
appearance on July 26. He pleaded not guilty.

Police Superintendent
Adani Ameyaw told the court presided over by Mr. John Ekow Mensah that the
incident happened on June 12, at about 1800 hours.

The accused lives in
the same house with the victim – a relative of the wife, at Adumasa.

He took advantage of
the absence of the wife to forcibly had sex with the girl at knife-point.

He warned her not to
tell anything about what she had been through or be killed.

The girl fearing for
her life, did as she was told, kept her ordeal to herself, and that emboldened
Donkor to continue to sexually abuse her.

He would sneak to her
room at dawn to sexually assault her and the victim, unable to stand the abuse
any longer, gathered courage and made a report to the police on July 10.

A medical examination
form signed by doctors confirmed multiple vaginal bruises, broken hymen and
urinary infection.

The prosecution added
that the accused admitted in his caution statement to defiling the girl but
denied threatening to kill her.
