Chief Inspector Yakubu said the complainant told the Police that he had been informed by one Isaac Sagoe that he saw the accused defiling the victim through the anus in a bush near the Kojokrom train line.
He said the victim told the complainant that the accused defiled him on 10 occasions after which he warned him not to inform anybody.
Chief Inspector Yakubu said after the latest defilement, the accused bought food for the victim.
