Masked men robbed Chinese store

Three unarmed men wearing mask  robbed  a retail store at Vaiola Hospital in Tonga  on Saturday 13.

The masked men entered the store and threatened two Chinese ladies and one Tongan employee.

Police said the robbers demanded cash from the trio about 10:15pm.

One of the men assaulted one of the shop keepers with a chair causing her head injury.

They then took $200 – $300 cash before they fled from the store.

The injured shop keeper was hospitalised but returned soon after and was in a stable condition.

Police investigation was underway.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
