POLICE have questioned a youth for the alleged assault of another patient — a woman — at the Labasa Hospital.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said the two were admitted at the hospital when the incident allegedly happened.

He said the youth was discharged on Wednesday while the woman was still admitted.

"So he was taken straight to the police for questioning and we are trying to get all information before we can press charges.

"We need to verify whether this is an alleged rape case or sexual activity between the two," he said.

"The doctor allowed us to interview him describing his condition as 'fit for an interview'.

"He is still in our custody and may be charged in the weekend."

Insp Sokomuri said investigations continued.
