is wanted in connection with assault on Dickson Asante, 42, and Nana Osei, 55,

in the process, stripped one of the victims naked and inflicted cutlass wounds
on the other before fleeing the scene

a serious view of the incident and had subsequently instituted investigation
into it after watching footage on the case.

with violent disposition, and that every frantic effort was being made to get
Yaw Boateng arrested and arraigned.
