Police appeal for information on Sumner assault

Christchurch Police are appealing for information from the public relating to an assault in Sumner earlier this month.

Detective Sergeant James Simpson says two males seriously assaulted an 18-year old male in Nayland Street, at about 1:30 am on Saturday 2 March.

The victim received a broken nose, broken eye socket, fractured hand and bruising. He was treated overnight in Christchurch hospital.

Detective Sergeant Simpson says the incident happened when the man and a friend were walking north on Wakefield Street when they were approached and assaulted by two men near the intersection with Nayland Street.

One offender is described as a male Polynesian, aged around 30, approximately 1.82cm (6 ft) tall, of heavy build with big shoulders and stomach, and reported to be wearing a blue baseball cap on backwards, light blue hoody and jeans.

The second offender is described as a male Polynesian, shorter than the other man, of stocky build, with short hair, and wearing a white t-shirt with rolled-up sleeves.

Detective Sergeant Simpson says initial efforts to identify the offenders have not been successful, and Police are appealing for witnesses, or anyone with information about the alleged offenders, to come forward

Any information can be reported to Detective Sergeant Simpson, ph. (03) 3637523 or to Christchurch police station on (03) 3637400.

Greens: Oil Drilling Face-Off With Labour

The plan is the second component of the Party’s environmental priority this election: Rivers clean enough to swim in again, and beaches safe from oil spills.

The Green Party loves New Zealand and will create a cleaner environment where our beaches remain open for swimming, not closed for oil spills.

The key policy points in the Green Party’s plan to protect our beaches from oil spills are to:
1. Prohibit deep sea oil drilling;
2. Implement compulsory shipping lanes for coastal shipping;
3. Build Maritime New Zealand’s oil spill response capability; and
4. Introduce a stronger legal framework so that when accidents do happen, the New Zealand taxpayer does not have to pay for the clean-up. More>>
