Cape Coast, July 09, GNA – A Cape Coast circuit court on Monday remanded a 54-year-old driver into Police custody for allegedly defiling a 10-year old daughter of his girl friend at Mankessim near Cape Coast.

The accused, Roland Josiah pleaded not guilty to the offence and is to reappear on Tuesday July 24.

Prosecuting, Chief Inspector Sarfo Khanin told the court presided over by Mr. Asare Nyarko that the complainant, one Madam Evelyn Quansah, a petty trader, lives with her daughter and the accused in a compound house at Mankessim.

He said on July 5th this year the complainant returned from church at about 2030 hrs to find her daughter crying in the room and when she was questioned she said it was Josiah who had defiled her.

Chief Inspector Sarfo said Madam Quansah then called her brother who also lives in the same compound to come and witness what had happened.

He said they then invited Josiah to come to the house to provide answers to the allegation but which he denied. Madam Quansah therefore sent her brother to report the matter to the Police.

He said during Police investigations it was revealed that the bed sheet on Madam Quansah's bed was covered with semen stains and Josiah was subsequently arrested.
