Serious kidnapping and violence incident under investigation

Serious kidnapping and violence incident under investigation

Eastern Waikato Police are investigating a serious violence and kidnapping incident that started in Auckland and ended on the Coromandel Peninsula yesterday evening.

The 29 year old female victim got into a vehicle driven by the offender, in Glen Innes, on the pretence that they would be going to visit an associate in a nearby suburb.

Once inside the vehicle, which was stolen, the offender drove to the Coromandel Peninsula keeping the victim in the vehicle as he drove. The offender assaulted the victim several times throughout the 2 - 3 hour ordeal.

Once in the Coromandel on the Whangapoa hill, 2 kilometres from Coromandel township, the vehicle ran out of petrol. The victim seized the opportunity to escape from the vehicle and after managing to open the passenger door and freeing herself from the offenders grip, ran off.

The victim managed to locate a house some 50 - 100 metres from the vehicle and the owners of the house, a very friendly and helpful couple, took the victim in and kept her safe until the Police and other emergency services arrived.

The vehicle was subsequently located and seized by Police for examination.

Police are seeking information on any sightings of a silver Subaru Legacy stationwgaon registration number BJY 539 travelling from Auckland to the Coromandel Peninsula between 7:00pm and 9:30pm on Easter Monday 21st April.

Police wish to speak to Brett MAKIRI in relation this matter. MAKIRI is a male Maori aged 23 years of slim build with long black hair. His whereabouts is currently unknown.

Detective Sergeant Jason PERRY of the Waihi CIB says that this is a very serious incident and the outcome could have been even worse than it has been for the victim had she not managed to escape from the vehicle.

Any information can be provided to the Waihi CIB on (07)8638179 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 and given anonymously.
