Police appeal for sightings of vehicles

Police appeal for sightings of vehicles

Canterbury

Police investigating the death of Christchurch woman Amy Farrall are appealing to the public for sightings of two vehicles connected to their inquiries.

A dark-coloured Nissan Terrano, registration number WR4174, is believed to have travelled between Christchurch and the West Coast any time from late-morning on Saturday.

The vehicle was the subject of a Police pursuit on the West Coast on Sunday evening and early Monday morning, in relation to an attack on two female tourists.

A 38-year old man was apprehended in relation to that incident at around 3.00am this morning.

Detectives investigating the Christchurch homicide travelled to the West Coast today to interview the man.

Detective Senior Sergeant Darryl Sweeney says the man received injuries, including dog bites, during the apprehension on the West Coast and he is currently receiving medical treatment for those injuries. He may be transferred to Christchurch Hospital for further treatment at some point.

As a result, Detective Senior Sergeant Sweeney says, the man currently remains on the West Coast. No charges have yet been laid in relation to either incident, and no court appearance is scheduled at this point.

Police inquiries are focusing on establishing the circumstances leading up to the incident, and the movements of the two vehicles of interest.

"We are appealing to the public for any sightings of the Terrano on roads between Christchurch and the West Coast on Saturday, but also in the Woolston area, including Wildberry Street where Ms Farrall lived, and elsewhere around Christchurch on Saturday.

"At the same time we are also seeking information about the movements of Ms Farrall's white Toyota Corolla, registration number WR2685, between about 9 and 10am, from the vicinity of Wildberry Street and Ferry Road through to where it was eventually located at New World in St Johns St, Woolston.

"Already we have had a number of positive sightings across the city reported to Police.

"A significant investigation team is continuing to work around the clock both on the West Coast and in Christchurch."

A post-mortem remains under way in Christchurch this afternoon. Detective Senior Sergeant Sweeney says the findings will be communicated to the Coroner, and Police are not commenting on the nature of any injuries.

Anyone with information about the vehicles or any other aspects of the case is asked to contact Christchurch police on (03) 3637400.

Information can also be provided anonymously to the organisation Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Gordon Campbell: On The Labour/Greens Deal (And The NZDF)

If Labour and the Greens were hoping their Budget Responsibility Rules (BRR) agreement would foster an unlikely alliance then hey… mission accomplished! Because it isn’t every day that Sue Bradford, the CTU and Matthew Hooton speak with one voice, as happened yesterday.

Unfortunately though, it’s hard to see how the BRR agreement will work to the advantage of Labour and the Greens in the context of the 2017 election campaign. More>>
