Morata fight breaks out from drink session

Police were called into the Morata 2 area of Port Moresby after Hagen and Wabag settlers fought early this morning.

 Three Wabag men were arrested after police found a home made gun in their possession while a Hagen man was also taken in after he tried to stab another Hagen man during the fight.

Reports state that the fight started when a group of Hagen men fought some Wabag men after an argument broke out during a drink up late last night.

Two Hagen men were treated at the Port Moresby General Hospital while a Wabag is being monitored after sustaining stab wounds to his back.

Police says that the situation is back to normal but they will maintain a presence in the area which is known for its fights and rowdy incidents.
