Suspected thief killed by mob in Takoradi

Crime scene

A young man believed to be in his mid thirties and suspected to be a thief, was Saturday dawn lynched in West Tanokrom, a suburb of Takoradi in the Western Region.

Some residents who spoke to Connect 97.1FM said they heard the alleged thief crying and shouting for help as he was being lynched in the early hours of Saturday.

The lifeless body of the alleged thief

Traces of blood were spotted on the street some meters away from where his lifeless body was left by the mob that attacked him.

The incident attracted a large number of people to the scene, causing a huge vehicular traffic build up on that stretch of road around 6:15am as drivers slowed down on reaching the crime scene to catch a glimpse.

The police has since taken the body off the street to the morgue and traffic resumed to normal.

Residents in the area have reported series of theft cases in recent times, with stolen car tapes and car batteries being the common ones.
