Police officers were attacked with sharp objects including machetes while trying to stop a vehicle without a license along Taufa’ahau road in Mailetaha.

Tevita Vailea – Acting Superintendent of Police told Radio Tonga News about 10 passengers were inside the vehicle.

For safety reasons – Police escaped unhurt the scene but this is an example of obstruction of Police duties.

Vailea says Police continue searching for the victims because they’re known to Police as some of them awaits trial.

The Police that were attacked include Patrol Officers and officers from the Charge Office.
