By Comfort M. Johnson/LINA

MONROVIA, January 19 (LINA) – The Monrovia City Court has begun the trial of one Amara Konneh (not Finance Minister) for allegedly armed robbing a Norwegian lady while leaving a local restaurant in Sinkor.

Police arrested Konneh on January 15, 2015 and later turned him over to the court on charges of armed robbery for trial following preliminary investigation.

The arrest was based on a complaint filed by victim Anne Oxseth who alleged that the suspect made away with a white Samsung S-Phone valued at US$600 and other assorted items.

Police charged sheet said on January 10, 2015 victim Oxseth explained that while returning home from the restaurant that night on 6th street in Sinkor, the suspect came from behind her and tried to pull her purse.

She resisted until the accused pulled out a knife from his pocket and attempted to stab her.

During police investigation, the defendant allegedly admitted committing the crime but denied using a knife, the police said.

He reportedly named his accomplice as D.J. Touch, who is yet to be identified.
