Man in custody after Korean-Kolomotu’a business couple attacked, Police search for second offender

    A Korean business couple was assaulted in their home in Kolomotu’a Thursday 4, before the offenders allegedly stole TP$300 and a mobile phone.

    Tongan Police have arrested a 24-year-old man and charged him with armed robbery and assault causing bodily harm shortly  after they received report of the incident but were still searching for a second man in relation to the attack.

    Police said the attack happened during night time shortly after the victims arrived home from their restaurant business in the Nuku’alofa Central Business District.

    Local media reported the couple had been robbed weeks before the attack.

    The wife has been punched in the face while her husband was hit with a rock on his head before the attackers fled the scene.

    The police are appealing for witnesses to the attack.
