She said the Police received a distress call from Gomoa Potsin that a commercial Mercedez Benz Sprinter bus with registration number (GR 6914-13) with passengers on board had been attacked by a group of young men.

They collected from the passengers an unspecified amount of money at a spot along the Gomoa Dominase-Potsin stretch of the Accra-Takoradi highway.
