A Taupo man will appear in court today after being arrested
for a family violence incident in Waitahanui.
Police were called by family members after a female was
assaulted and threatened with a firearm about 4.20pm
yesterday, Senior Sergeant Fane Troy said.
Armed police found the 32-year-old man in the area and he was
taken into custody without incident.
He will appear in the Rotorua District Court today facing
charges relating to the incident.
"Any kind of violence towards people is not okay. Police
applaud those family members who intervened in this matter,"
Mr Fane said.
