Suspicious Incident at Service Station

Suspicious Incident at Service Station

There have been media reports regarding an incident at the BP Wylies Service Station on Maunu Road where a man tried to get into a car parked on the forecourt.

Media reports stated that a woman who was in the passenger seat of the car said a man had forced his way into the driver's seat (the driver had gone to pay for fuel) and began searching for the keys in the ignition and that he "had is bum in the seat and tried to shut the door.."

Police had not received a complaint regarding this incident, but due to the serious nature of the allegation contacted the service station and viewed the CCTV footage.

The footage shows a man in a hooded red jacket walking up to the car, opening the door, reaching in and then taking off. The man doesn't appear to be forcing his way on to the driver's seat.

Whangärei Area Prevention Manager Senior Sergeant Cliff Metcalfe says, however, he man appears to be committing an offence of unlawfully interfering with a motor vehicle and police would like to hear from the female victim who was seated in the car or anyone has any information relating the incident.

Anyone with information can contact Whangärei Police on 09 430 4500 or if they wish to remain anonymous can contact the Crimestoppers organisation on 0800 555
111.
