The Asante Bekwai Circuit Court has convicted a marble layer who smashed his girlfriend’s iPhone 12 ProMax 128 cellular phone valued at GH₵8,000.00.
Mr. Douglas Nana Yeboah, 32, pleaded guilty to causing unlawful damage and he was convicted on his own plea but his sentence was deferred to April 21, 2022. Police Chief Inspector Christian O. Amartey told the Court presided over by Mr. Mark Timarah Diboro that Juliet Imoti is the complainant and a make-up artist.
She lives at Ahenema Kokoben while the convict lived at Brofuyede/Adumasa. The two are friends.
Chief Inspector Amartey said, on April 9, 2022, Nana Yeboah, the convict, visited the complainant at her house at Ahenema Kokoben at about 22:00 hours. While he was in the room with the complainant, somebody knocked at the door. The convict asked the complainant who was knocking at the door, but she could not give him any answer.
The Prosecution said Yeboah then left. On his way, he overheard Juliet on phone asking someone to come visit.
Chief Inspector Amartey said Yeboah on hearing that, returned but the complainant had then locked the door.
He, therefore, managed to convince the complainant to open the door with the explanation that he had left his things in the room and needed to pick them up, the Court heard.
He said when Juliet opened the door, the convict quickly entered, took the complainant’s iPhone 12 ProMax 128 which she had put on the bed and smashed it on the ground.
