Corporal Roland Agbovi Tetteh, an Asutuare police officer, is currently incarcerated after reportedly raping a suspected thief in his custody.
Precious Azumah, the victim, was in police custody for stealing from her ex-boyfriend, according to a police situational report.
Precious Azumah, a 17-year-old girl, kept vomiting while in detention, so Corporal Roland Agbovi Tetteh opened the cells and let her out to clean her mat and the cell in which she was held.
According to police investigations, Precious was harassed by the officer who fondled her breast despite her protests.
The young girl is claimed to have fled when the policeman was escorting her back to the cells but she was rearrested and locked up.
The randy policeman, however, opened the cells at 11:30 p.m. on January 20, 2022, for Precious to take a bath in the washroom and stood by her until she finished.
The corporal is claimed to have coerced Precious into sleeping with him, then cautioned her to keep it between them.
Corporal Roland Agbovi Tetteh was detained when Precious confessed what happened, and she was given Police inquiry bail and a medical form to attend the Akuse Hospital for medical examination, treatment, and endorsement.
