Cowardly Attack Raises Ire Of Police

Cowardly Attack Raises Ire Of Police

At about 7.40pm on Friday the 23rd of November 2012 a female was subject to a vicious assault in the West Auckland suburb of Sunnyvale.

The 26 year old female got off the Western bound train at the Sunnyvale Train Station and took the walkway which leads toward Newham Place and Sunnyvale.

A male followed the female from the station having disembarked from the same train.

He then attacked the female from behind grabbing her clothing and punching her in the face in an attempt to get her onto the ground.

Detective Sergeant Litherland of the Waitakere CIB stated:
" The female resisted the assault by kicking and punching the male and finally scratching his face. In a gutsy display of courage the victim was able to repel what was clearly a premeditated and sinister attack."

The male ran back in the direction of the train station and the victim, who was left bruised and shaken, sought assistance from the Police.

The male was described as a Pacific Islander or possibly Indian aged in his late 20's or early 30's with short black hair. He had a skinny build and is likely to have scratch marks to his face. He was wearing a long sleeved grey sweat shirt and black full length pants and black shoes.

Police would like to hear from anyone that may have seen this male either on the West bound Train which arrived at Sunnyvale at 7.37pm or may know of his identity.

The male will have difficulty concealing the injuries to his face so the Police are asking for the public to either contact them directly on 09 8390627 or through Crime Stoppers on 0800555111.

Gordon Campbell:
On The Kim Regime

During the Cuban Missile Crisis, the US had a very clear objective and eventually offered a quid pro quo of the removal of some of its own missiles from Turkey. This time, there’s no clarity about what the US is seeking, or offering.

It hasn’t helped that the US and the global media consistently agree on calling North Korea and its leadership “crazy” and “irrational” and urging it to “come to its senses”. When you treat your opponent as being beyond reason, it gets hard to comprehend what their strategy is, let alone work out the terms of a viable compromise. More>>
