The police has been bashed severely for allegedly neglecting the case which has courted national discourse. The girl is currently battling for her life after she was allegedly defiled by an 18-year-old man, Kwabena, a farmer at Assin Adadientaim in the Assin South district of the Central region.

The victim who collapsed during the act is currently receiving treatment at the Assin Fosu St Francis Hospital.
