According to the police, it was Aweh who informed Adjare and Ali about the absence of the woman.
Adjare entered the premises wearing a mask to conceal his identity, since he was well-known in the vicinity, while Ali carried a knife.
They walked to the window of the room in which the girl was sleeping and called her with the false information that they had been sent by her mistress to deliver a message to her.
Immediately the girl opened the door they dragged her to the living room where Adjare forcibly had sex with her, with Ali threatening to kill her if she dare shout.
When Adjare completed the action, Ali also dragged the girl to the bedroom of the woman and sexually abused her.
The girl bled from the act but she managed to walk to the nearby Ridge Police Station to lodge a complaint.
Ali and Adjare, after the act, took away GH¢1,080, a DVD player and perfume belonging to the owner of the house.
Police investigations later led to the arrest of Adjare and Aweh.
