POLICE are yet to arrest a suspect who allegedly defiled a 15-year-old girl during a drinking party in Cakaudrove.

Spokeswoman Ana Naisoro yesterday said they were aware of the whereabouts of the suspect and were in the process of arresting him.

"A report was lodged by his wife last Friday while the suspect was in Suva.

"We know where he is and right now, we are carefully working on taking him in for questioning," Ms Naisoro said.

"Right now, investigations into the matter continue."

It was earlier reported the incident occurred between 1pm and 6pm on November 30.

The matter was reported by the suspect's wife who received information that the victim was found sleeping inside their bedroom on the alleged day of the offence.

Ms Naisoro said the suspect's wife was away in Labasa when the alleged incident occurred.
