Police appeal for witnesses to Tikipunga incidents

Please attribute to Detective Senior Sergeant John Clayton.

Police are appealing to the public for witnesses to two incidents involving a black ute in Tikipunga yesterday.

At approximately 1pm on Sunday 19 August, a young female was pulled into a black ute as she walked along Manapouri Road at the junction with Corks Road.

Thankfully the girl was able to free herself and escaped from the vehicle whilst it was still moving.

A driver who witnessed the incident stopped to help the young girl.

We would like to hear from this driver.

We also believe the same vehicle may have been involved in an altercation outside the Tikipunga shops at the intersection of Kiripaka and Spedding Roads where the ute may have received minor damage, later the same day.

Police have arrested and charged a man in relation to the first incident but would like to hear from anyone who has information about either incident.

If you have any information that could help our investigation, please contact Detective Bradshaw at Whangarei Police on (09) 430 4500.

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