Man Who Stabs Police Officer Appears In Court

A 26 year old unemployed Manurewa man will appear in the Auckland District Court this morning following the stabbing of Police Officer with a screwdriver in Auckland City yesterday afternoon.

The man was breaking into cars in an Auckland City carpark building at about 3.30 p.m. yesterday when he was approached by police. He tried unsuccessfully to escape and when caught turned on the 29 year old Acting Sergeant and tried to stab him with a screwdriver. The Sergeant blocked the main force of the blow but received a laceration on the back of his shoulder and had his shirt torn. A second officer joined the struggle and they were eventually able to contain and arrest the offender.

The Acting Sergeant was able to complete his shift yesterday, after having what is fortunately a minor wound seen to.

The man faces charges of aggravated injuring, possession of an offensive weapon, theft (3), unlawful interference with motorcar (11), and unlawfully taking a motorcar.
