A young man who was two days ago suspected as a thief by the University of Cape Coast Security Patrol Team has been declared innocent by the University Police.
Senior Assistant Registrar Security of the University, ACP/RTD Johnson Owusu-Agyeman in an interview disclosed to Spencer Kwabena Boateng Mensah Tuesday afternoon that the police has established the victim (name withheld) as a student of the university and owner of the ‘blue-black golf’.
The man who blew what has been described as ‘a false alarm’ was a taxi driver who had his vehicle crashed into by the victim’s.
An undisclosed source explained that attempts by the taxi driver to draw the attention of the victim to the damage caused to his taxi was unfruitful.
‘…the taxi driver blew an alarm suspecting he stole the vehicle and was finding an escape due to the level of speed at which he drove.’ The source added.
Although the victim was sent to the university hospital for medical attention after he was allegedly beaten by unidentified people, a source close to him hinted that he has been discharged.
Public Relations Officer of the university Major (RTD) K. Baah Bentum who expressed displeasure about the incident admonished students not to hesitate in introducing themsẹlves as such in times of crises.
Calm has returned to the parties as they have solved the issue amicably.
