Witness in court

A WOMAN described how she witnessed her neighbour beaten up during a robbery two years ago.

The robbery trial of Sitiveni Tuisamoa, Samuela Beeby, Alipate Lesi and Peni Tuilaselase continued yesterday in the High Court in Suva.

The four have denied forcing their entry into a home in Davuilevu two years ago and robbing the occupants.

Ivamere Veikoso told the court she was sleeping at home when she heard shouts for help coming from the house across the street.

She said she woke her husband and then went to the porch to see what the commotion was about.

Mrs Veikoso said she saw four men with their faces covered in what possibly could have been masks terrorising the family across the road.

She said she saw an assailant kick her neighbour while he was down on the floor.

She told the court she called the police and shouted at the men who were robbing the neighbours.
