Focus on car in Riverhead attack inquiry

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 7/03/2017

Detectives investigating the attack on a woman in a Riverhead quarry, north-west of Auckland, are seeking information about a car seen earlier in the central city.

Police say the woman woke up in the quarry early on February 26 to find a man with a bat standing over her.

They say CCTV footage shows the woman walking past McDonald's on Great North Road towards Bond Street in central Auckland at 1.15am that Sunday.

The footage also shows a silver/grey car, similar to the one seen driving into the quarry, turning right from Bond Street on to New North Road at 1.18am.

Detective Senior Sergeant Kim Libby says it's possible that it's the car that took the woman out to Riverhead.

He says police want anyone with CCTV systems in central Auckland to contact them.

Anyone who has seen a silver/grey car similar to a 2008 Ford Mondeo in that area around that time is also asked to get in touch.

Det Snr Sgt Libby says inquiries are continuing into who owns the "Stanley" brand glove found at the quarry. Those gloves are sold only at The Warehouse.

"We've had a few calls about this, but we really need to hear from anyone who knows someone who uses these gloves," he said on Tuesday.

"Do you have an employee or a contractor? Have you seen these in a friend's car? No piece of information is too small."

More than 30 officers are working on the case.
