A 26-year-old man is in police custody at the Savusavu Police Station for allegedly sexually molesting a nine-year-old student in separate occasions at a village in Cakaudrove.
Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri confirmed the victims had been medically examined and sent home.
"The suspect is in police custody and we are still carrying out our investigations," Insp Sokomuri said.
"Many of our sexual offence cases involve young children because of their vulnerable age, and parents are the sole guardians of their children," he said. "We encourage parents to take responsibility for their children in ensuring their safety and security," he said.
