Witness to Northland assault sought

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 27/01/2017

Police are looking for two men in relation to an assault in Whangarei on Thursday evening.

A 29-year-old victim was asked to take the two men home, and after he'd begun driving, they became aggressive towards him, began punching him, and one placed him in a choke hold.

The assailants jumped from the vehicle when the victim managed to attract the attention of the driver of another vehicle on Second Ave.

The driver of the vehicle, a 4x4 ute with an open back, possibly blue, helped the victim but the assailants got away.

Police wish to speak to the driver of the ute.
