Solomon Islands CIP Police arrest male suspect for allegedly defiling an underage girl

Police at Tulagi in the Central Islands Province of Solomon Islands today 29 November arrested a male suspect for allegedly defiling an underage girl.

The male suspect is alleged to have sexually abused the underage girl on two different occasions.

Acting Provincial Police Commander, Central Islands Province, Inspector Hugo Maelasi says, “Statements have already obtained from the victim and her mother after the mother reported the incident to the Police. A case has now been opened and investigations are underway.”

“It is sad that this alleged defilement incident should happen as the country is currently involved in the 16 Days of Activism Against Violence against women and girls. Men should take the lead in protecting our young girls against such acts instead of abusing them,” says Acting PPC Maelasi.

He adds: “Parents are also encouraged to look after their children making sure you know where your children are and whose company they are in especially during the coming festive season.”

Acting PPC Maelasi appeals to both parties in the alleged defilement case to refrain from taking the law into their own hands but allow the police to investigate the matter.
