Victims urged to report damages

Main Stories

POLICE in Western Highlands have called on those who were affected by the rampage in Mt Hagen last week to report any damage to their properties or injuries, a senior officer says.
Police commander Chief Superintendent Joe Puri said presently no suspects had been identified and anyone who was victimised could lay formal complaints.
He said police had received seven quotations from vehicle owners who had their vehicles damaged. Puri said he was expecting others to come forward and lay their complaints as the election period would see most police resources focused on the general election.
Puri said the rampage had taken everyone by surprise and the process now was to lodge formal complaints and identify suspects.
“Right now we have not identified any suspects in this case and my men are still working around the clock to have this matter dealt with,” he said.
Puri said police were taking the matter seriously as many properties and lives have been affected as a group of men from Southern Highlands rampaged through Mt Hagen following the death of one of their man who was killed two weeks ago in Mt Hagen.
Puri urged city residents and business owners to help police.
