Police seek those responsible for aggravated robbery

"Masterton Police seek those responsible for aggravated robbery"
Masterton Police are investigating an aggravated robbery at a Renall Street home on the evening of Monday 10 December.

At around 9.15pm that night, two women and a man entered the home and assaulted three people. Two of the victims suffered facial injuries and one sustained bruising to her arms and legs.

A weapon was used to inflict some of the injuries, and one of the victims required hospitalisation and surgery for facial injuries (pictured).

“Members of our community should be safe and feel safe in their homes,” says Detective Senior Sergeant Haley Ryan.

“We want to find the three people responsible for this horrendous attack and hold them to account.”

The male offender is described as tall and skinny (around 5’ 9” 10”), in his early 20s.
He was wearing a grey face mask.

Both of the female offenders were aged between 16-18, and were around 5’ 3” to 5’ 5” tall.
One had shoulder length black hair and one had shoulder length brown hair, possibly with a little bit of purple through it.

“There will be people in our community who know who these people are, and we want to hear from you.”

If you can help, please call Detective Gillian Flower at Masterton Police Station.
