Boy, 16, attacks Jesus

By Margaret Wise
Thursday, September 14, 2017

SHOCKED that he was physically attacked during an attempted robbery early Wednesday morning, a visiting Spanish national was horrified when told his attacker was a mere 16-year-old boy.

Jesus, a 31-year-old living with a Fijian family at Namaka, Nadi, was in the country barely a week when he was attacked during an early morning walk.

"He was quite happy with what he saw when he got here four days ago, but after what happened he said he wanted to go back to his home as soon as possible," said Lele Vereivalu, an Airports Fiji Ltd worker who was host to the Spaniard.

"Jesus likes to take pictures so he had taken his camera and gone for a walk at 7am. I was still sleeping when I heard him screaming for help and crying. I got up and saw his left cheek was swollen, like as big as a mango and his shirt was off, his body was covered in bruises."
