Taupo Times - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - TAUPO PO­LICE Fam­ily in­ci­dents: Theft ve­hi­cle:

An un­pro­voked as­sault on two tourists, in Roberts St on May 24, re­sulted in po­lice ar­rest­ing and charg­ing three males .

The mo­ti­va­tion for the at­tack is not clear how­ever one of the of­fend­ers be­lieved the vic­tims - who had just ex­ited from a restau­rant - had dis­re­spected him.

Both vic­tims were left in shock and one re­quired med­i­cal at­ten­tion.

While the vic­tim’s were dis­ap­pointed that on look­ers nearby failed to as­sist, Taupo Po­lice said they don’t ex­pect mem­bers of the pub­lic to put them­selves in dan­ger in these cir­cum­stances. Wit­nesses of vi­o­lent crimes are ad­vised to call po­lice and stay around to speak to po­lice, and as­sist with en­quiries.


Taupo Po­lice at­tended nine in­ci­dents over the past week which re­sulted in two ar­rests. of mo­tor
