A three-year-old girl reportedly bled to death at Yobong Kura in the Tain District after she was allegedly defiled by a 20-year-old man.The suspect, identified as Mahama Oldman, who is currently in the custody of the Wenchi Police, is said to have inserted a stick into the genital organ of the girl several times after defiling her.

Oldman is alleged to have perpetrated the dastardly act in the full glare of the deceased?s mother about 7 a.m. on Saturday, June 30, 2012.

The suspect is alleged to have threatened the girl?s mother with a machete if she did not stay away.

The deceased?s mother is said to have returned from fetching water for her household chores, only to find Oldman defiling her daughter.

The Deputy Brong Ahafo Regional Crime Officer, Mr Saviour Ahiamadi, who gave a briefing on the incident in Sunyani, said that when the girl?s mother was returning from the water source, she heard the child crying and saw Oldman carrying her on his shoulders.

He indicated that even in the presence of the mother, the suspect courageously put the child down and, to the surprise of the mother, started defiling her openly. When she attempted to restrain him, the suspect pulled a machete and warned her to stay away.

Mr Ahiamadi said the mother then called a neighbour, Mr Kwadwo Biereh, who quickly came around, and when the suspect saw Biereh, he ran away on his bicycle.

He said Biereh assisted the woman to carry the profusely bleeding child to the Brohani Health Centre for treatment.

He said, however, that due to the severity of the injuries, the patient was referred to the Nsawkaw Hospital, where she died early on Sunday, July 1.

The case was subsequently reported to the police.

The suspect would soon be arraigned.**
