Assault at Whangarei petrol station

Assault at Whangarei petrol station

On Saturday July 14 about 2.00am a 29-year-old female was assaulted on the forecourt of a petrol station in Whangärei.

The victim and her sister arrived at the Mobil Service Station on Walton Street in a silver car.

The victim's sister was approached by a male, who was wearing a light grey hoodie and as a result the victim got out of the vehicle and walked around to her sister.

Another male wearing a distinctive faded fluorescent orange hoodie has approached the victim from behind and punched her in the face.

The victim sustained serious injuries and she was admitted to hospital for several days.

Witnesses describe the male in the orange hoodie as European, with olive skin, about 17-years-old to mid twenties, with a medium to tubby build. He had brown coloured hair with short back and sides, although a little bit longer on the top.

The distinctive orange hoodie is described as fluorescent orange zip-up hoodie with black stripes on it.

The male wearing the light grey plain hoodie, also aged between 17 years and mid-twenties, is described as European or possibly part Maori with fair skin. He has light brown shoulder length hair. He had a skinny, lanky build. He was wearing a distinctive tee-shirt under the grey hoodie which appeared to have a three leaf marijuana symbol with black writing on the front.

Police are seeking further witnesses and any information about the two males.
Please contact Constable Jacqui Willemse at the Whangärei Police on (09) 430 4566 or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
