A 37 year old man, Kofi Inkoom has been stripped naked by the Awutu Brekum Watch Night Dog Committee and beaten severely for allegedly stealing 15 goats.
Kofi Nkoom reportedly stole the goats from Winneba with two other accomplices who are currently on the run.
In his confession, the victim said, they stole the goats from Winneba but their vehicle developed a fault upon reaching Winneba.
The two other accomplices sensing danger absconded but luck eluded Kofi Inkoom who was arrested by the group, attacked and beaten.
According to Andy the eyewitness, the victim was also tied to a poll because he was caught in the evening and as part of punishment given to alleged thieves, residents are allowed to also beat them.
The victim is said to be in a critical condition and on admission at the hospital.
