Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

A 20- year- old Whitby man has ap­peared in Porirua Dis­trict Court charged in con­nec­tion to a se­ri­ous in­ci­dent which left a man with stab wounds.

De­tec­tive Shane Carter of the Porirua CIB says about 6.30am on Sun­day, April 29, a 21-year-old man was at­tacked with two 30-cen­time­tre-long knives sev­eral times, at an ad­dress in Az­imuth Place, Whitby.

‘‘The at­tack left the vic­tim re­quir­ing hospi­tal treat­ment for in­juries to his head, neck, arms and leg. He has since been dis­charged.’’

De­tec­tive Carter says the 20-year-old ac­cused ap­peared in the Porirua Dis­trict Court on Tues­day, charged with wound­ing with in­tent to cause griev­ous bod­ily harm. He has been re­manded on bail with strict con­di­tions un­til later this month.

‘‘Po­lice ar­rived quickly at the scene, pre­vent­ing any fur­ther in­juries from oc­cur­ring. A Taser was pre­sented at the ac­cused. How­ever, it was not de­ployed.’’
