Three suspects have been taken into custody for allegedly attacking a police officer, while search for two others continue.

The incident happened when Police Constable Suliano Vasuitoga who is based at the Samabula Police Station was at his home when he heard a cry from help from his neighbour after youths had allegedly stoned his car before assaulting him.

Constable Vasuitoga chased the youths and arrested one of the suspects from a nearby cassava patch.

While escorting the suspect he was confronted by a group of men and allegedly beaten up badly before the members of the community came to his assistance.

Acting Commissioner, Rusiate Tudravu says Constable Vasuitoga was off duty when he responded to the call for assistance and to be attacked in such a manner will not be condoned.

Tudravu says they know the identities of the five men involved and the taskforce team has been directed to arrest all those involved as soon as possible.

The incident happened in Cunningham, Suva last night.
