“Second male charged over Grey Lynn dairy incident”

Please attribute to Detective Senior Sergeant Lloyd Schmid, Auckland City Police.

Police have charged a second man in relation to an incident at a Grey Lynn dairy that occurred on Tuesday 19 June.

Police appreciate the Grey Lynn community has been very concerned about the attack and we hope by apprehending these offenders that this will offer some reassurance to both of the victims, their family and the community.

“This has been a traumatic ordeal for the victims and there has been a tremendous amount of support offered by the community which has been greatly appreciated. This was very distressing for the family who suddenly found their mother and son seriously injured and Police would like to thank the community for the support they have offered,” said Detective Senior Sergeant Lloyd Schmid.

Police have had a dedicated team of investigators working on this and are pleased to get a swift result.

The 62-year-old woman is now at home and recovering with her family, and her son, 36, is still in hospital and reported to be doing well.

A 27-year-old Otahuhu man has been charged with assault with intent to rob and aggravated wounding.

He will appear in the Auckland District Court today.
