A 23-year-old man from Waiyavi, Lautoka who was arrested for breaching curfew hours faces an additional charge of serious assault after he allegedly attacked a Police officer with an empty bottle.

The incident happened at Votualevu in Nadi.

Police Commissioner Sitiveni Qiliho says the officer sustained minor injuries and has been treated and sent home.

Qiliho says breach of curfew reports continue to be recorded and between the hours of 10pm last night to 5am this morning, 35 cases have been recorded.

The Southern Division recorded 18, Eastern Division recorded 9, Western Division recorded 6 while the Northern and Central Divisions recorded 1 case each.

Qiliho says in the Southern Division, officers from the Raiwaqa Police Station while attending to a report of excessive noise arrested two women who were found walking along Leys Road in Raiwai last night.

He adds similar arrests were made in the Southern Division involving those found walking around during curfew hours were made along Fletcher Road, Nailuva Road, Jittu Estate, Rewa Street, Narara Street, Navua Town, Caubati and Nadera.
