The robbers pulled Mr. Sargborgor out of the vehicle, collected his mobile phone and the day's sales and drove away.

Mr Gasu said on May 3 the Good Samaritan, whose is withheld for security reasons, rang the police at Winneba and informed them of a suspected abandoned vehicle at Sakumono Estates at Tema that has Winneba address on it.
