TWO men in their late thirties were taken into police custody on Saturday morning in Taveuni after organising a public gathering that turned rowdy.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the men were having a fundraising event which involved the consumption of alcohol and that villagers who turned up for the event were rowdy as they danced to loud music during the night.

"The village headman at Vuna had personally asked for assistance in controlling the two men and they were taken in for police questioning," said Ms Naisoro.

"However our personnel in Taveuni are continuing investigation before determining whether to lay charges on the two or otherwise for public annoyance," she said.

In a separate incident, police on Taveuni are investigating an alleged case of attempted rape over the weekend.

Ms Naisoro said the victim had accompanied the 30-year-old suspect to a swimming spot where the suspect allegedly tried to rape the girl.

"Police investigations continue into the case," she added.
