Police are appealing to the public for information relating to an aggravated wounding at a residential address on Royal Rd, Massey late Tuesday 19 June.

Just before midnight a female offender entered a house on Royal Rd and took the owner’s car keys for her car, which was parked in the driveway.

The home owner has woken to hear her car starting and the offender trying to manoeuvre the car down the driveway.

The 58-year-old victim has attempted to stop the offender by getting into the front passenger seat of her car and received serious injuries and was taken to hospital.

The offender left the car and ran off down Royal Rd.

Police now believe the female offender had been breaking into other cars in the area and ask the public to come forward with any information which may lead to the arrest of this person.

The offender has been described as a young Maori or Polynesian female of slim build with long brown hair parted in the middle.

We’d like to reassure the community we are doing everything we can to apprehend this offender.

If you have any information that could help our investigation, please contact Waitemata Crime Squad on (09) 839 0697.

Alternatively, information can also be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
