AN angry man was reported to drive a backhoe in to the front lobby of the Coral Sea Hotel yesterday. This was only hours after a successful ‘Fashion show’ was staged there.
No one has been reported injured in the incident.
But Island Sun was reliably informed that the malicious damage that occurred had nothing to do with the hotel’s management or any other issue with the hotel nor anything to do with the staging of Saturday night’s event.
As reported by the RSIPF Media, “It was alleged that the man had some marital issues with his wife who works at the Coral Sea Casino Hotel.”
As relayed to Island Sun, the Hotel’s management are said to be upset over this incident and have handed the matter over to the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) for investigation.
From reports received by Island Sun, the angry driver took advantage of his employer’s backhoe to vent out his anger at the Hotel’s reception area. The driver is said to be an employee of Solomon Water.
The incident is the first of its kind as Solomon Islands women continue to face issues of violence both at home and in their workplace.
For Coral Sea Resort, despite receiving a dent in their hospitality service, they have resumed normal operations already.
