Fiji Police recorded a slight increase in sexual assault cases reported in July this year.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said a total of 23 reports were received compared to 20 for the same period last year.

The increase she attributed to people taking the initiative to come forward and report the rapes.

And what is even more worrying, Naisoro said was that most of the perpetrators are known to the victims with the offence happening within their homes.

She said indecent assault cases also showed a slight increase from 17 last year, to 20 in 2012.

She said sexual assault is hard to prevent than other types of crimes because it is part of a serious social problem that occurs when a person thinks they have a right to access one’s body.

The Fiji Police Force is urging members of the public to take precautionary measures to prevent such acts from occurring.
