SUVA, Fiji (Fijilive, Jan. 10) - A 21 year old man will appear in court Tuesday for allegedly attacking the Australian High Commissioner, Jennifer Rawson.

He was charged yesterday with robbery with violence.

Police say the suspect was arrested at Valenimanumanu settlement in Reservoir Road, Suva, on Sunday evening following a tip to the Crime Stoppers unit, which had publicly promised a handsome reward for information.

Rawson was mugged at about 5 a.m. last Saturday while on her daily walk near her residence on Princess Road.

The attacker fled with her Walkman.

Rawson is in a satisfactory condition in Australia.
