Two men have appeared in the High Court in Suva charged with assault and theft.

Timoci Motukula Ratubalavu and Manueli Nakurekure appeared before Justice Daniel Goundar on Friday. It is alleged that on May 19 in Nasinu, the two assaulted a complainant and caused actual bodily harm.

On the same day, the two allegedly grabbed a handbag with assorted items worth $1000 from a second complainant. Ratubalavu admitted the charges while Nakurekure pleaded not guilty.

The State sought seven days to file the summary of facts for Ratubalavu’s plea.

The matter was adjourned for Ratubalavu’s sentencing and mention for Nakurekure on July 16.
