The Central Regional Police Command has arrested eight (8) people suspected of attacking at a police station at Mankessim in the Central Region.

Reports indicate that the incident happened after the police arrested a taxi driver who carried 10 passengers in his vehicle on the Winneba-Mankessim highway.

The officers suspecting that the occupants were criminals, gave them a chase leading to the arrest of the driver at the Mankesim Zongo Junction.
Emmanuel Assan, the officer who was attacked by the youth has reportedly been discharged from hospital.
