The 25 year old suspect has been charged and will be produced at the Suva Magistrates Court today.

The accused has been charged with one count of damaging property, act with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, and resisting arrest.

This after a female Special Constable at the Delainavesi Community Post came under attack a few days ago.

Special Constable Julie Tuikenawa described the attack as one of the most terrifying experiences in her policing career.

Tuikenawa was on duty at the Community Post this morning when a woman came running to the post asking for assistance as her partner had allegedly threatened her at their home which was located near the post.

She said her immediate concern was to ensure the woman was placed in a safe room as the suspect had allegedly pursued her after a confrontation at their home.

While doing so she allegedly heard the sound of an object hitting the railings and saw the suspect wielding a cane knife and smashing the railings.

Tuikenawa said the suspect was hurling abuse at the officer for allegedly interfering with their personal matters by protecting his partner, and he continued to smash the windows and doors.

She was able to assist the suspect’s partner escape into the nearby mangrove swamp and also jumped out of a window and onto the water tank where the suspect is alleged to have swung a knife, narrowly missing her leg.

Officers from the Totogo, Lami and all officers nearby arrived at the scene and under the direction of the Divisional Police Commander South and the suspect’s father, were able to diffuse the situation without any injuries, however the Delainavesi Community Post did sustain extensive damage.

The suspect was allegedly drunk at the time of the incident and is now in custody at the Lami Police Station as investigations continue.
