Eight men will be produced at the Suva Magistrates Court for allegedly attacking a group of Police officers on Friday morning.
The incident happened near the Mead Road Housing complex in Nabua, Suva.
The eight have been charged with offenses such as fail to produce driving license, failing to obey traffic direction, dangerous driving, and criminal intimidation, damaging property, resisting arrest and driving motor vehicle without license.
The suspects attacked three police constables and a special constable who were on patrol in Nabua.
Police say when the officers saw the occupants of two vehicles acting in a suspicious manner they approached the vehicle and saw the men were armed.
The suspects then sped from the scene and the officers chased them to Mead Road Housing where they blocked the police from the front and back with their vehicles and then struck the police car with iron rods and stones while the officers were inside.
The eight will appear in Court tomorrow.
