1 min read

A 34-year-old man is appearing in the Lower Hutt District Court this afternoon charged with assault following an incident in a Kairanga Street, Wainuiomata, house on Tuesday afternoon, 22 March.

Detective Senior Sergeant Soni Malaulau, Lower Hutt CIB, says the man was stopped by police while travelling on the Haywards Hill Road late this morning.

Police are still keen to hear from people who heard an argument at the house about 4.30pm on Tuesday which has left a 56-year-old man critically ill in Hutt Hospital, or sightings of a man in camouflage pants and a black and white sweatshirt leaving the address.
