Quick action by Valelevu Police has resulted in the arrest of two men who allegedly robbed a 14 year old student in Nadera yesterday afternoon.

Divisional Police Commander South Senior Superintendent of Police Wate Vocevoce says the student was following a shortcut from his school when the two suspects approached him and stole his mobile phone and ear pods, before fleeing the scene.

SSP Vocevoce says the alleged incident occurred after midday and the two were arrested later in the afternoon.

He says in a case reported last month, the suspect of an aggravated robbery along Wairua Road in Tamavua has been charged and will be produced in the Suva Magistrates Court today.

The accused allegedly assaulted and robbed a taxi driver on the 24th of November and stole cash, mobile phone and assorted items worth over $1,200.

He has been charged with one count of aggravated robbery.

SSP Vocevoce says this festive season the operations in the Southern Division are focused on increasing visibility with the "boots on the ground" concept, covering settlements and densely populated areas to counter thefts and other opportunistic crimes.
