South Waikato News - - Your Paper, Your Place - LUKE KIRKEBY

A Toko­roa woman was rushed to hospi­tal with se­ri­ous knife wounds to her throat on Sun­day night.

Toko­roa Po­lice sergeant Brett Watene said she was in ‘‘stable but se­ri­ous con­di­tion’’ fol­low­ing one of two se­ri­ous fam­ily harm in­ci­dents in the South Waikato town in re­cent days.

‘‘She was com­mit­ted to Waikato Hospi­tal with se­ri­ous throat in­juries as a re­sult of a knife wound and a male has been ar­rested,’’ he said.

‘‘At this stage he has been charged with breach of a pro­tec­tion or­der.’’

Watene said po­lice are also on the hunt for Toko­roa man Ti­mothy Wil­son in re­la­tion to a sep­a­rate al­leged fam­ily harm in­ci­dent.

He said af­ter the al­leged in­ci­dent, which he de­scribed as ‘‘se­ri­ous’’, a po­lice pur­suit un­folded in which Wil­son man­aged to get away in a blue Mazda Lan­tis, registration XG7331.

‘‘We don’t be­lieve he is a dan­ger to the pub­lic but there is a war­rant for his ar­rest,’’ he said.

Watene de­scribed him as a male Maori in his mid 20s and said a 1996 blue Honda CRV, registration CSD134 was also linked to him.
