Police are investigating an incident in Nadi on Sunday in which a young pastry chef was allegedly lured to Enamanu Road in Nadi, threatened and raped.

Police are now hunting for the suspect.

The 19-year-old was on her way to JetPoint at Martintar when the suspect approached her and asked her to do a favour for him.

The suspect said he had some personal problems with his sister and needed someone to help him get his books and laptop.

Both then boarded a bus and got off at Saunaka before the suspect led the chef through what he said was a shortcut.

It was there that the woman claimed she was raped.

Police said after the incident the woman managed to take a picture of the suspect, which is now with Police.

The woman then told her boyfriend about the incident and they lodged a formal report at the Nadi Police Station.

The victim was taken to the Nadi Hospital for a medical examination.
