Police speaking to men in relation to train assault

Auckland City

Please attribute to Detective Senior Sergeant Marcia Murray, Auckland City Police.

Police are speaking with two people in relation to the assault of two teenagers on a train on Saturday night (12 August 2017).

The victims were travelling from Britomart to Henderson when five men who had their faces disguised attacked the teens.

This was a completely unprovoked attacked.

The two men who are assisting us with our enquiries came forward to Police yesterday, and we have identified a further three men and are yet to speak with them.

No charges have been laid at this stage and further enquiries are continuing.
