The Fiji Police is calling on members of the public to come forward with any information that can lead to the arrest of those involved in the rising number of aggravated robbery cases.

Chief of Operations and Assistant Commissioner of Police Henry Brown says, “It has been noted that these cases are occurring as we approach the weekend with the perpetrators becoming more daring.”

People are also being advised not to carry valuables at night as most of the cases are committed by opportunists who Fiji Police found that only commit crimes when an opportunity arises.

ACP Brown said, “We are stepping up our operations and while we admit that we can’t be everywhere we are requesting members of the public to take the necessary safety precautions.”

A trend has been noted that these crimes have been committed mostly from Thursday till Monday morning from 6pm to 6am, Brown added.

Meanwhile, the Fiji Police will also be looking into claims against the 917 help line stating it is either non operational or no one is manning the phones.

Further investigations continue, added Fiji Police spokesperson, Ana Naisoro.
