The Akatsi police have arrested a 30-year-old man, Emmanuel Kusorgbor, for raping a 40 year old woman.
The suspect, well known as sir, is said to have sneaked into the room of the mentally challenged woman and had an unlawful sexual encounter with her.
Upon sensing that he may be caught in the act, Kworgbor fled the scene by scaling over a wall.
It is unclear how her relatives got wind of the assault, but a report was made at the Akatsi district police station at about 1:00pm the same day.
The police issued a police medical form for the victim to be sent to Akatsi Municipal Hospital for examination and treatment.
After a careful examination, the Medical officer of the said hospital confirmed the victim had been assaulted.
