Police investigating after blood found in two public locations in Beach Haven
North Shore Police are investigating following the discovery of significant amounts of blood in two public areas of Beach Haven this morning, and are working to establish how the blood came to be there and who it has come from.
At around 3.30am Police discovered a quantity of blood on the Beach Haven wharf. Another bloodied area on the footpath on the corner of Rangatira Road and Beach Haven was found not long after. The two locations are around 400 metres apart.
Detective Senior Sergeant Brett Batty, Waitemata Police says "A man is in custody and is assisting Police with enquiries. He was arrested near the Beach Haven wharf on a disorder-related matter, however he is not injured. We are working through several lines of enquiry but at this point in time we simply don't know what's happened. It could be that a fight has taken place and the other party hasn't phoned Police or sought medical help, but whoever that blood has come from, we need to know."
The Police Eagle Helicopter and the Police Boat Deodar have scoured the coastline this morning for clues but as yet nothing of interest has been located.
An area canvass is underway and Police want to hear from anyone who has information that could assist.
"If you were in the Beach Haven area last night and heard or saw something that you think could help us, then please call the North Shore Police on 09 488 9754" says Det Snr Sgt Batty.
