In a police statement sighted by GhanaWeb, it noted that the attacked police officer sustained a knee injury and was rushed to the hospital for medical attention.

The officer then stopped them and requested to search the car. However, the suspects in an attempt to prevent the police officer from checking the car pounced on him and attacked him.
