Po­lice seek­ing wit­ness

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

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.
