Police to charge man

THE 16-year-old girl who was allegedly abducted by her stepfather last month is believed to have been defiled prior to the incident.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said police would soon charge the accused who allegedly held his stepdaughter in captivity at a farm house since May 31.

Insp Sokomuri said police had received the victim's medical report from doctors.

"Upon questioning the girl we have reasons to believe that she was raped on a different occasion by her stepfather last year," he said.

"The girl was interviewed today (yesterday) and we have to brush up on investigations before we finally lay charges."

Divisional police commander North Senior Superintendent of Police Naulumatua Lutunacaucau earlier told this newspaper the victim resided with her stepfather and biological mother.

SSP Lutunacaucau said the girl was located last Friday in a makeshift farm house in another village.

He added that she was located after a police search party combed forests in the area.

SSP Lutunacaucau also said the girl was now residing with relatives.
