Kelvyn Boy Remanded
An Adentan Circuit Court has remanded Kelvin Brown, or “Kelvyn Boy,” in police custody for allegedly attacking a lady by stamping her ribs and hitting her back and right hand with an iron rod many times.
Brown, who was charged with assault, pleaded not guilty.
Brown’s bail application will be heard on Wednesday, February 23, in a court presided over by Mrs Sedinam Awo Balokah.
Deborah Kponyi, the complainant, was a trader, according to prosecuting Chief Superintendent of Police Patience Mario.
The complainant and the accused had been married for more than ten years and had two daughters, according to Chief Supt. Mario.
“The relationship has been full of abuse,” according to the prosecution.
The accused and the complainant used to live together, but the accused packed his belongings and moved out.
It claimed that one of their children became ill and required medical attention, prompting the complainant to contact the savings and loan firm where they had stored money, only to be told that the account was empty.
According to the prosecution, the complainant attempted to contact the accused by phone to corroborate the facts and inform him that his sick daughter needed to be sent to the hospital for medical treatment.
The complainant, however, was unable to contact him, according to the report.
Fortunately, she observed the accused’s vehicle moving by and followed it, later discovering that it was driven by a woman, according to the prosecution.
According to the complaint, the complainant contacted the lady to inquire about the whereabouts of the accused, and the lady summoned the accused, who reportedly assaulted the complainant, pushed her down, and stamped her ribs.
The accused allegedly pulled the complainant out of the house and repeatedly hit her back and right hand with an iron rod until she was saved by a motorbike rider who drove her there, according to the prosecution.
A few minutes later, a worker at the complainant’s shop, Kelvin, called to tell her that the accused had reportedly come to the shop and taken her speaker, Nasco 32-inch TV set, and two chairs worth GHC5,500.
