A MAN is in custody for allegedly indecently assaulting seven primary school girls.

The man, who is about 50 years old, is alleged to have lured the girls aged between nine and 14 with cash.

It is understood the alleged incidents happened in a village on Vanua Levu.

Acting police commander Northern SSP Fulori Rainibogi confirmed the man had been questioned and was in custody.

"We received seven reports from different girls from the same village," she said.

"Again, parents please know who your children hang out with and what they do at home.

"This man has been in the iTaukei village for some time and we notice that all these alleged cases happened during that time."

SSP Rainibogi has called on parents to be vigilant about the activities their children engage in.

"Look out for the safety of your kids and be vigilant with them," she added.
