Two Tourists were assaulted near the Kapua Camping Ground in Raglan at about 6 pm on Thursday 16 January 2014. Raglan Police ascertained that an altercation took place at the Camping Ground where a male and female were told to leave.
As the female was leaving the area she punched a female French Tourist in the jaw causing her to fall to the ground. A short time later the female offender then punched a female Australian Tourist in the nose causing it to bleed.
Senior Sergeant Gael Mockford of the Hamilton Police said members of the public who witnessed the assaults provided Police with a detailed description of the offender’s vehicle.
“Police later located the vehicle and apprehended the 23 year old female offender. The offender will be appearing in the Hamilton District Court on 29 January 2014.
“Information from witnesses enabled the early arrest of the offender. Without the assistance of the public Police would have had difficulty identifying the offender. The Raglan Police would like to thank the public for their assistance.”
If anyone witnessed the assaults and have not spoken to Police then please contact your local Police Station.
