A young suspected motorbike thief has met his stars as he escapes the wrath of an angry mob as he was nearly lynched at Assin Adiembra in the Assin South District of the Central Region.
Lucky enough, the timely intervention of the police at Assin Aworoso saved his life.
Eye witnesses report that the thief stole the motorbike from Aboso in the Western region to hide it in Assin Mankato in the Assin South District.
However, upon a tip-off, the owner of the motor was able to trace the hideout of the suspect to Assin Adiembra and subsequently got him arrested.
They subjected him to severe beatings and later handed him to the police.
The suspect is currently on admission at St. Francis Xavier Hospital in Assin Fosu receiving treatment with handcuffs tied to the hospital bed.
