Wellington Police are concerned by a cowardly attack on a German tourist early this morning, which left him with a badly fractured jaw.
At about 4.16am, the 17-year-old tourist was approached by the occupants of a dark coloured van as he walked in the Tory/Wakefield Street area.
Three people got out of the van and attacked the tourist, leaving him lying on the ground.
A possible motive was robbery as the victim's wallet was taken during the attack.
Police want to hear from anyone who may have seen this incident or who saw a dark coloured van with heavily tinted windows during the evening or early hours of the morning.
