Police are investigating an alleged attempted break-in at the Bargain Thrift Store at Mark Street in Suva last week.

While speaking to fijivillage News, the business owner says they were surprised to see the glass on the door of the entrance smashed and pieces of timber seen on the verandah as Police conducted their investigation.

The alleged robbers could not go through due to the thickness of the glass.

Meanwhile, hut continues for the man who allegedly robbed an elderly man in front of a bank in Suva City earlier this week.

The elderly man had recently returned from New Zealand.

Security officers at the bank told fijivillage News that a youth had allegedly arrived earlier at the bank, and waited for the man until a second youth grabbed an envelope from the man and ran away.
