Man attacked by group of young people
AUCKLAND: A young man was randomly attacked by a group of about 10 young people in Grey Lynn yesterday.
The attack took place outside Tiger Burger restaurant in Great North Rd about 3.30pm.
Police received several calls about incidents involving multiple young people yesterday afternoon, including an incident in which a man was assaulted.
A St John spokeswoman said an ambulance was sent to the scene and a person treated for minor injuries.
It is understood the group of young men began a conversation with the victim outside his work, and he was then attacked without provocation.
People from neighbouring shops came to his aid.
Amir Mohammadi, who owns a Turkish kebab shop in the same block, said there were about 25 boys in the group.
He did not witness any attack but said the group was causing mayhem.
Police caught up with 10 young people about 500m away.
It was not known if charges would be laid. — The New Zealand Herald
