Police have reported a domestic violence incident that took place only days before a weekend of events to highlight the issue on St Helena.
It happened on Monday 19 November 2012 in the Sandy Bay area.
Detective Sergeant Clarence Roberts said: “One male person was arrested for causing a breach of the peace and detained in custody. He was later interviewed and suitably dealt with for common assault and harassment.”
Police adopted a new policy for dealing with domestic violence on 25 November 2011 – on the same day as islanders joined world-wide events to help combat attacks in the home.
