The Asante Bekwai circuit court in the Ashanti region has sentenced a tailor to 10 years imprisonment with hard labour for robbing a trader of her 40 pieces of ice cream.
Simon Blay, 28, pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced on his own plea.
Detective Chief Inspector Stephen Ofori told the court presided over by Mr Mark Tair-ima Diboro that Sarah Ofori and Blay were neighbours at Feyiase.
He said on September 15, 2021, at about 1400 hours, Sarah was going about her normal business when Blay called her under the pretext of buying some of the ice cream.
Prosecution said the convict took advantage of the quiet nature of the area and with a pair of scissors, robbed the ice cream seller of her items, a purse containing a cell phone, GH¢25.00, all valued at GH¢112.00.
