A 40-year-old suspect in the custody of the Madina Police in Accra, Yaw Baah, being held for threatening to kills his mother, has reportedly bitten off the nose of a policeman.
Baah, who is said to be an ex-prisons officer, reportedly bit off the nose of Inspector Samuel Aryee, while being taken to hospital on August 8, this year.
Inspector Aryee, popularly referred to by his colleagues as Atta Aryee, is currently on admission at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.
A source at the Madina District Police Command told graphic.com.gh that Baah was in custody for allegedly threatening to kill his mother.
It said although the Madina Magistrate’s Court had granted the suspect bail, Baah could not provide a surety to be released.
He said in the morning of August 8, 2012, Baah reported sick and had to be taken to hospital by the investigator, Inspector Aryee.
According to the source, upon reaching the Institute of Professional Studies (IPS), Baah reportedly bit the nose of the investigator, without any provocation.
The source said Baah, however, claimed that the investigator slapped him while they were on the vehicle.
It said witnesses in the car at the time of the incident, however, denied the accusation that the investigator slapped the suspect.
