Po­lice call off hunt

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Po­lice in­ves­ti­gat­ing what was thought to be a se­ri­ous as­sault in Mt Al­bert have con­firmed they are not looking for any­one else in re­la­tion to the in­ci­dent.

De­tec­tive se­nior sergeant Greg Cramer says po­lice were called to a New North Rd ad­dress at 5.40pm on Mon­day last week where a man in his mid 40s was found un­con­scious.

The man was taken to hospi­tal but a med­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tion did not show any in­juries.

“Early in­di­ca­tors were of a se­ri­ous as­sault,” says Mr Cramer.

“Fol­low­ing on from ap­pro­pri­ate med­i­cal treat­ment, a scene ex­am­i­na­tion and speak­ing to wit­nesses, we are now sat­is­fied we don’t need to look for any­one else.”

Mr Cramer says there were sus­pi­cious cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the in­ci­dent and po­lice treated it as se­ri­ous un­til it was proven oth­er­wise.
