Auckland City Police have made two further arrests in the investigation over a serious assault outside a Grey Lynn bar on Sunday.

Two men, a 20-year-old and a 35-year-old, both faces charges of assault with a weapon and assault.

Acting Detective Inspector Glenn Baldwin says there has been a team of determined investigators working on the case.

“This was a senseless and violent attack and to date we have made four arrests in connection with this incident.

“Police take these matters seriously and our efforts should serve as a reminder that we will hold people to account.

“We would like to acknowledge the assistance from members of the public so far. I hope that this brings some reassurance to the Grey Lynn community.”

The two men are due to appear in the Auckland District Court on 22 May.
