A man charged with the abduction of a child under the age of 18 has been remanded in custody by the Suva Magistrates Court.

Etuate Lesukilau appeared yesterday before Magistrate Deepika Prakash charged with one count of abduction with intent to commit carnal knowledge and one count of attempted rape.

The complainant in the matter is an eight- year-old child.

It is alleged that on December 2, 2018, in Suva, Lesukilau unlawfully took away a girl under the age of 18 with the intent to have carnal knowledge.

It is also alleged that on the same day, Lesukilau attempted to have carnal knowledge with a girl under the age of 18.

The Police prosecutor objected to the bail on the grounds that the offence was indictable and was a very serious offence. He also highlighted that the accused was a known offender.

He also informed the court that there was no domestic relationship between the accused and the complainant and the accused was not from the same area as the complainant.

Magistrate Prakash ordered that the accused file a formal bail application and be remanded the accused in custody.

The matter was adjourned to December 19 for mention.
