He said on March 27 at about 2000 hours the accused and two others now at large went to 37 Military Hospital area on a motorbike rode close to a sprinter bus in traffic whilst one of them slapped Lydia and snatched her infinix Note 4 mobile phone valued at GH¢850.00, whilst making a call in the bus.

The Prosecution said the accused proceeded to Joshua, who was in his private car and informed him that he had had a flat tyre and whilst his attention was on the tyre, the accused person picked his infinix Note 4 mobile phone again valued at GH¢850.00 and took to their heels.
