Police seeking men
The photo to the right depicts two of three men accused of acting inappropriately towards a female on a bus from Whitby to Paremata Railway Station on the evening of January 13. If anyone saw these men or knows who they are, please contact Sergeant Liam Stewart. Police are looking for witnesses to an incident in Cannons Creek Park at about 4.30pm on Wednesday, January 16, when a 61- year- old woman was lying asleep on the grass and woke to find a male straddling her and trying to take her handbag. The man was chased off by pass- ersby and police need to identify witnesses who saw the incident and can help identify the offender. It was a sunny afternoon, a number of people were around the park who may have seen the incident. The offender ran off through bush at the back of Cannons Creek School.
