The alleged thief appeared at the scene and was communicating with him, impersonating the son of the owner of the car as his dad.

“When I arrived at the scene, he (the alleged thief) approached me from the passenger side. I rolled down the window and then started talking to him. He led me to park the car, after which I forgot to roll up the window,” Jasseh narrated. He added, “He was standing by while I talked to the owner of the car that was hit. He took the bag and started to move. My driver saw him with the bag but didn’t know that it was my bag.”

The alleged victim further stated that his driver waved to the guy, and he felt guilty and asked him to come forward, “but my driver said no, I thought you had my telephone, but I found it.”

According to Lamin, his driver saw the alleged thief jumping into a moped or Keke, or tuk-tuk, as they call it.
