Source: New Zealand Police – One man in custody following serious assault
Police have arrested a man following an incident which resulted in a crash in Papatoetoe just off the Southern Motorway.
At around 1:30pm Police were called to a domestic incident in Paerata where two women received serious injuries, allegedly inflicted with a sword.
A 19 year old man fled the scene in a vehicle and was located soon after, entering the motorway north at Papakura. Multiple Police units pursued the vehicle until Te Irirangi Drive where the man took the offramp, drove over the grass median strip and crashed.
He was promptly arrested by armed officers and taken into custody without further issue.
Police are aware that a number of members of the public witnessed the arrest on Te Irirangi Drive and thank them for their patience.
The 19 year old man will appear in court tomorrow facing various charges relating to the assault and driving.
