A SPECIAL police taskforce has been set up in the Western Division to hunt down the man who allegedly stabbed a 33-year-old woman in Naisaumua, Tailevu on Tuesday.

On the same evening, police had erected roadblocks along the Kings Rd.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the suspect was believed to be in Nadi.

"We are pleading with relatives of the suspect to assist police with whatever information they have that could help us locate him as he is wanted for arrest," Ms Naisoro said yesterday.

She said the post-mortem examination result of the deceased conducted on Thursday confirmed the cause of death as a result of injuries sustained in the alleged attack.

Meanwhile, police are also seeking information about the woman who dumped her baby along the Sukanaivalu Rd footpath in Nabua early this week.

Ms Naisoro said the post-mortem examination had been conducted however, the results would not be disclosed.

"It has been confirmed that the foetus was about 26-28 weeks old," she said.

Ms Naisoro said they were requesting members of the public to come forward with any information that could assist them in locating the mother of the baby.
