Kpekeh Town Community in Lower Johnsonville, Montserrado County, over the weekend suffered two attacks reportedly from marauding armed robbers who, in recent time, were said to have recruited many of their brothers into criminal activities.
Police identified two of the suspected robbers as Daniel P. Kolley (aka Bravo), and another one who was also identified only as Philip, alias Moutry. Bravo is the son of a police officer who, shortly after his son and his alleged accomplices were arrested on Saturday night, surfaced at the police station to appeal for the release of his son.
The robbers, according to a resident police officer (not named), had in recent times reportedly attacked several business centers, among them women who involved in petty roadside trading.
The suspects initially resisted police arrest until police reinforcement, backed by their counterparts from the Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency, arrived brought the situation under control.
The two alleged ringleaders have meanwhile been detained at the Uptown Police Substation, while undergoing investigation.
The Daily Observer gathered yesterday that police assigned at the Uptown detail have already forwarded the suspects to court for prosecution.
