Man to appear in court following assault
A 24-year-old male is due to appear in the Tauranga District Court on Monday following being arrested for assault and causing wilful damage.
On Saturday SunLive readers reported a convoy of Police vehicles heading north on State Highway 2 through Bethlehem with lights flashing.
"We were coming through Te Puna and passed seven cops heading the other way towards Katikati with all their lights flashing, going for it, all close together," says a SunLive reader.
Six marked Police cars, one unmarked Police car and a Police van heading north were noted by many others as well.
Police report that this was related to a family harm incident at an address on Muirfield Crescent in Aongatete.
"A 24-year-old male was arrested and taken into custody," says a Police spokesperson.
"He is due to appear in the Tauranga District Court on 19 April on charges relating to assault on a person in family relationship, and wilful damage."
