The Swedru Municipal guard seen in a viral video assaulting a young boy by kicking his head with his boot has been arrested by the police. He was arrested with two other accomplices last Friday.
The Agona Swedru District Police Command picked the three for assaulting one Kwame Tsiboa for allegedly stealing mobile phone credit cards worth GH₵95.00 last Wednesday at Agona Swedru.
The suspects, all aged 35 years are Isaac Ntsiful and Peter Danso, both municipal guards of the Agona West Municipal Assembly (AWMA) and Sampson Aikins, a baker.
They are currently in police custody and expected to be put before court on Monday March 25, 2019.
The arrest of the three followed a viral video on social media, which showed Peter Danso, in particular, kicking the head of the young boy, who was on his knees.
He said they have since been charged.
He said the suspects assaulted the victim on an allegation that he had stolen mobile phone credit cards from a vendor but after a search on him, nothing was found on him.
According to him, Tsiboa denied the allegation that he had stolen the credit cards.
