Police seeking witness
Porirua Police are looking for a witness to an incident in Elsdon where a man was allegedly threatened and had what he believed was a firearm pointed at him.
Detective Shane Carter says about 3.30pm on Thursday, February 23, a 36-year-old man was about to leave his house in Gloaming Hill when two men with their faces concealed arrived in a vehicle, preventing the victim from leaving.
‘‘It’s alleged that one of the males got out of the vehicle, threatening the victim and pointed what is believed to be a firearm at the victim.
‘‘Luckily he managed to run away from the address. However, a set of mag wheels were then stolen by the alleged offenders.’’
Police want to speak to a motorist who stopped to help the victim and let him use their mobile phone to call police.
A 26- year- old male has been charged with aggravated burglary, being disguised for burglary and threatening to kill.
The male is currently before the courts.
