Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

A man pointed a gun in the face of a police of­fi­cer dur­ing a foot chase in the early hours of Wed­nes­day. Police said that around 12.55am, of­fi­cers at­tempted to stop a car that was be­lieved to be stolen, on Sel­wyn Street in One­hunga. The driver, be­lieved to be 25 year-old

Hay­den Rizvi, failed to stop and fled. The man drove the car to Three Kings, then stopped the car and ran away. A police of­fi­cer chased the man but he sud­denly stopped run­ning and pointed a firearm at the of­fi­cer’s face, police said. The of­fender then fled over a fence. The of­fi­cer was not in­jured but was shaken.
