Samoa's Police Commissioner has sought help from the mayors of Fasitoo tai and Vailu'utai villages to find who threw stones at his vehicle, smashing a window.

Neither the commissioner, Fuiavailili Egon Keil, or his driver were hurt, but he has met with the village mayors on Monday to discuss assistance with the investigation.

Sources in the police say a drug raid in Fasitoo tai last week could be the reason behind the incident.
