Escalating school fights keep police busy

    Two Liahona ex-students arrested as Tonga police officers spent Thursday and Friday patrolling the downtown Nuku’alofa after reports of ongoing student fights at the Nuku'alofa seafront bus station.

    Police said the two Liahona ex-students are in their 20s and were in Police custody after they allegedly attacked Apifo’ou students including a prefect.

    No charges have been made as investigations continued.

    Police said ex-students involving in the fight make it difficult in their attempt to arrest fighters because they wore plain clothes.

    A source said the schools were said to be on lockdown alert and parents are told to make sure their children are at home during the weekend after the series of fights escalated since the last couple of weeks.
