A 19-year-old Senior High School (SHS) 2 student, Patrick Nyarkoh, has been arrested by Assin Fosu Police Command in Ghana for defiling 18-month-old twin-girls at Assin Nsuta, Assin South District of Central Region.
Mother of the victims said after several hours of searching for her daughters, she found the twins lying unconscious in the room of the suspect, who is a co-tenant, GhanaWeb reports.
The mother suspected the twins were in the room of Nyarkoh because before leaving her house, the suspect was the only one at home.

Fluids suspected to be sperms were found on the little girls, which prompted the parents to make an official complaint to the police.
DSP Daniel Darkoh, Crime Officer of Assin Fosu Fosu Police Command, confirmed the incident.
Meanwhile, the suspect, during interrogation admitted committing the act and said he was under the influence of an unknown evil spirit. He, however, pleaded for forgiveness.
