FIJIAN Police are continuing the search for the man who allegedly raped a 14-year-old girl in Dreketi last week.

The alleged incident occurred between July 20-21.

“Police are searching for the suspect whose identity is known to us,” Insp Qio said.

“The victim has been medically examined and the results prove that she had been abused.

“It is alleged that the victim was raped on two separate occasions during the same period.”
