The notorious rapist and armed robber, Abdulai Karim who escaped from police custody in Sunyani has been rearrested.
According to the Sunyani Police Command, the suspect was arrested in neighbouring Burkina Faso following police intelligence.
Abdulai Karim escaped from the custody of the Sunyani Police Command from the custody on March 30, 2020.
The suspect allegedly hit one of the police officers on duty with the cell gate and bolted.
The 24-year-old alleged criminal was busted at an undisclosed hideout on February 23, 2020.
A statement released by the Bono regional police command said, in 2019 alone, the suspect was alleged to have raped about eleven women in Sunyani and its suburbs.
The strategy he used, according to the police, was to monitor his female victims and know where they stay. Then at odd hours, he would forcibly break into their rooms either through the windows or doors, and rob them of their valuables after raping them.
Also as part of his mode of operation, Abdulai Karim would switch off the electricity meter in the victim’s house and when they rush out to check, he would sneak into their rooms and later rape and rob the victim at knife-point.
