Man Alleged To Have Assaulted Family Members To Appear Court On Monday

A 25-year-old man alleged to have assaulted his four-year-old daughter and three-year-old niece on June 11, 2018, will be produced again in the Suva Magistrates Court on June 25, 2018.

The accused, who is employed as a baker, is charged with one count of assault causing actual bodily harm, and two counts of act intended to cause grievous harm.

He was produced in Court on Monday before Magistrate Waleen George.

On the day of the alleged incident at about 7pm the accused allegedly assaulted his 27-year-old wife, daughter and niece in their Howell Road home in Samabula.

The alleged incident took place after an argument erupted between the accused and his wife regarding the teachings being done to their daughter and his niece.

The accused was further remanded in custody and his case will be called in Magistrates Court Three on the next date.

Magistrate George issued an interim Domestic Violence Restraining Order against him with no contact and non-molestation conditions.

The status of his legal representation is expected to be discussed on the next date.

Police Prosecutor Sergeant Luke Qerawaqa appeared for the Prosecution.
