A woman identified to be by the name Suzy Laar who is 18-year-old is in the grips of the Suntreso District police command in the Ashanti Region for allegedly stealing a three-day-old baby at Racecourse in the Kumasi Metropolis.

The Ghana Police Service said the incident occurred after the mother of the baby, Ramatu Seidu, woke up from sleep on 17th September 2021 to find her baby magically missing.

Ramatu then suspected that the accused person, Suzy Laar, a lady she lived with had taken the baby. According to the police, the two spent the night together with the baby before the baby got missing together with the accused in the morning.

According to Inspector Regina Oparebea Amoako, the Prosecutor handling the case, the mother of the alleged missing but found baby saw the accused sleeping beside her.

“At about 2 am she [the complainant] woke up and found the accused person sleeping beside her. She questioned her on what she was doing in the room, but she got no tangible reason. The complainant slept again but woke up at 4 am and then realized the baby and the accused were nowhere to be found.”, Inspector Regina stated.

Based on reports from the Police, the complainant received information that the accused person had taken the baby to Ejura where she comes from. Based on the information the complainant received, she followed up and indeed met the accused in the town.

She further reported the case to Ejura police and the accused has been arrested and brought to the Suntreso police station for investigation.

To understand the reason behind the stealing of the baby, Inspector Amoako said investigations by police found that the accused person had told the mother that she was pregnant.

“She had a miscarriage, and so she went to Kumasi where she met the complainant, and so she took the baby to show to her mother that she had delivered a baby boy", Inspector Amoako said.

According to the prosecutor, she has been charged with child stealing.

Although the accused has pleaded not guilty to the charge, she has been remanded into police custody for three weeks.
