A driver who was captured in a video assaulting a woman whose identity is yet to be known that has gone viral is currently in the grips of the Cape Coast police.
According to sources, the suspect Godwin Bayor alias Yaw, a 42-year-old man was captured in the video physically assaulting the woman alleged to be a sex worker.
Per the narration accompanying the video, the suspect after patronizing the services of the woman declined to pay the required amount, leading to an exchange of words.
