POLICE at the Munda Police Station have thanked several women who had the courage and responsibility to report an alleged sexual grooming matter on 11 March 2018, which they are now investigating.
“We have received a report and I want to thank these women who were concerned and took the initiative to come forward to police when they saw that things didn’t look right,” says Sergeant Rachel Lilo, Officer-in-Command of the Munda Police Station.
She adds: “As citizens of this country, we should take bold actions to eradicate this kind of behaviour involving our young women and girls.”
Sergeant Lilo says, “We are now aware of the report and currently investigating it. I want to call on the general public not to remain silent on this kind of incident, but to come forward to police and report what you know and may have seen so that proper investigations can be carried out.”
“I call on relatives and friends of those young women or girls as well as members of the public to come forward with information that may assist the police investigation into the matter,” says Sergeant Lilo.
