An Australian woman has been taken to hospital after a vicious assault in Fāhefa, Tongatapu yesterday Sunday 18.

The suspects were still at large.

Police said two men entered the house where the woman and her husband lived.

They allegedly hit the woman’s head with a rock. The attack was interrupted by the husband who arrived back home to find his wife had been brutally attacked.

The intruders took off with two liquor bottles, a Police spokesperson told Kaniva News.

Nukunuku Police arrived at the scene and took the woman to hospital, Police said.

Police believed they knew the suspects and they were still searching for them.

Police said claims on Facebook that the woman was a member of the Australian Humanitarian and Relief assistance teams who arrived in Tonga after tropical cyclone Gita, was incorrect.
