A HOUSE was broken into, properties stolen and a teenager raped in Port Moresby last Saturday.
A statement from Deputy Commissioner of Police Simon Kauba’s office said five masked men broke into a residence, at Boroko, in the early hours while the residents were asleep.
It said the men raped a 16-year-old girl.
“The suspects stole a laptop, cell phone and cash all valued at K5,750,” Kauba said.
He said the suspects were believed to be from the Vadavada settlement.
He said police were still investigating and hoped to make arrests soon.
In a separate incident, a man was led by a woman to Lareva Market in Hohola where his car was stolen.
Kauba’s office said when Samson Dubai and the woman drove into the market in his vehicle, he was approached by two men armed with kitchen knives who forced him out of his car and drove off.
The statement said the car was still to be recovered and investigations were continuing. ONE PNG /The National
