The Swedru Municipal guard seen in a viral video assaulting a young boy by kicking his head with his boot has been arrested by the police. He was arrested with two other accomplices  last Friday.

The Agona Swedru District Police Command picked the three for assaulting one Kwame Tsiboa for allegedly stealing mobile phone credit cards worth GH₵95.00 last Wednesday at Agona Swedru.

The suspects, all aged 35 years are Isaac Ntsiful and Peter Danso, both municipal guards of the Agona West Municipal Assembly (AWMA) and Sampson Aikins, a baker.

They are currently in police custody and expected to be put before court on Monday March 25, 2019.

The arrest of the three followed a viral video on social media, which showed Peter Danso, in particular, kicking the head of the young boy, who was on his knees.

Graphic Online gathers that on the day of the incident, the municipal guards had been detailed by the municipal assembly to control traffic at the Swedru PROTOA Station.

Superintendent Seth Yirenkyi, the District Police Commander told Graphic Online that the three suspects were arrested on Friday after a complaint had been lodged.

According to him, Tsiboa denied the allegation that he had stolen the credit cards.
