Two people are in Custody at Namaka Police Station for allegedly assaulting Police Officers.

On the Sunday (01st January, 2017) at around seven in the evening, a report of fight in progress in Careras, Votualevu was received whereby the two officers were deployed to the scene.

They found the two suspects drinking and when approached they allegedly swore at the two officers and despite being warned to refrain from doing so, they allegedly assaulted the officers both of whom sustained injuries as well as having their uniform damaged.

Both suspects ran away from the scene and were later arrested.
All efforts are being put in by officers during the festive period so that everyone is able to enjoy themselves without major incidents and having worked around the clock to do so, the offence of assaulting an officer during the course of their duty is a serious offence.
