The Makira-Ulawa provincial police commander Peter Sitai said an arrest had yet to be made as more information was required from the public.

Mr Sitai condemned the alleged rape as an unacceptable act and has appeled to the people of Ugi Island to come forward to police with any information that may help the investigation.
