Patrick Allotey granted GH¢100,000 bail after assault charge


Patrick Allotey has been granted a GH¢100,000.00 bail with three sureties after he was charged with assault at an Accra Circuit Court on Monday.

Mr Allotey, 26, has been accused of assaulting a football fan who has been identified as Michael Siaw at the Accra Stadium on January 26, 2020, during Hearts of Oak, Kotoko encounter in the Ghana Premier League.

The lanky boxer has since pleaded not guilty to the charge of assault and causing harm.
According to reports, Mr Allotey was ordered to deposit his passport at the registry of the court.

The court ordered that two of the three sureties must be public servants who earn not less than GH¢1,500.00 a month.

The case, which was heard at the Accra Circuit Court 10, was presided over by Mrs Evelyn Asamoah.

Mr Allotey will also report to the police once every week. The case was adjourned to February 25, 2020.

The former WBO Africa Super Welterweight champion was captured on camera beating the complainant, Mr Siaw.

Mr Siaw suffered a deep cut at his left side of his eye.

However, Mr Allotey has subsequently apologised to the victim.
