The 14-year-old student who reported his biological mother – Mary Timah - to the Osu police in Accra over hot iron burns he sustained, yesterday admitted stealing GH¢20.00 from his mother’s wardrobe.

The boy had appeared before an Accra Gender-Based Violence Court where his mother is being tried and said to have confessed perpetrating the theft. It is unclear what the child might have needed the said amount for.

This compelled Timah, 40, to allegedly burn the boy’s hands with hot iron after she had accused him of stealing GH¢20.00.

Though the case was heard in camera in the court presided over by Mrs. Rita Agyeman Budu, DAILY GUIDE sources claim that the teenager admitted stealing the money from his mother.

Timah has been remanded into police custody to reappear on Wednesday, February 18, 2015.

She is facing a charge of causing harm contrary to Section 69 of Act 29/60 - an offence she has denied.

Inspector Kofi Atimbiri told the court that on February 7, 2015, Timah returned from town and noticed that someone had broken into her wardrobe and stolen the aforementioned amount and that the accused strongly suspected the victim to be the one who stole it.

Inspector Atimbiri indicated that as a result, Timah called the victim into their room, locked the door and asked him who it was that stole the money.

According to prosecution, when the boy denied taking the money, Timah heated an electric iron and burnt the victim’s hand and cheek with it, but the victim managed to escape to the police station.

Inspector Atimbiri indicated that the victim was rushed to the Police Hospital where he was admitted, treated and discharged after some days.
