Police are on the hunt for the deputy gang leader of a notorious group called “Seven Brothers” accused of burglarizing the home of a female resident of 5th Street, Sinkor on Tuesday, 12 March.
The group’s leader only identified as “Arab Man” was earlier on Tuesday morning, 12 March arrested in Fiahma, Sinkor, after he and some suspects allegedly burglarized the home of a lady in Saye Town and stole money and some items.
A police source hints that gang leader Arab Man and his deputy only known by his street name “Witchcraft” are allegedly linked to the criminal act which left several valuables including laptop computer, flat screen television, stereo set, LRD$10,000 and two cell-phones among others.
Our source says there are strong indications that suspect Witchcraft is seeking refuge in the West Point Community to evade police arrest.
Our source also hints that the group leader Arab Man was sent to the Monrovia City Court on Saturday, 16 March.
According to the source, at least three witnesses have testified to allegedly seeing the notorious gang leader and his associate Witchcraft with the stolen materials while they were escaping the community during the early hours of Tuesday, 12 March.
The witnesses have told our source that they could not engage the suspects because they were allegedly armed with deadly weapons.
According to one witness, Arab Man and Witchcraft have and continued to allegedly rob, hijack and terrorize peaceful residents of Sinkor.
The Liberia National Police (LNP) has confirmed arresting suspect Arab Man on several occasions for various offenses.
In an effort to retrieve some alleged stolen items from suspect Arab Man, the leader of Zogos (wayward folks) in the Fiahma area identified as Man Devil was contacted by the victim and security officers to assist in tracing the accused.
However Man Devil is said to have been led by the victim’s relatives on two motorbikes to certain part of Airfield, Sinkor, but the suspect was not found.
Following phone call with the accused by Man Devil, the suspect is said to have disclosed that he was at his Saye Town residence. He was subsequently arrested.
Under severe pressure from the arresting officers, suspect Arab Man is said to have disclosed where he and his accomplices were keeping materials stolen from the victim. But he allegedly refused to submit the items.
He was therefore taken to the police depot in Airfield where he was charged with theft of property and ordered detained, pending court trial.
When Arab Man was contacted by our reporter, but he denied stealing the victim’s properties as being alleged.
