Police are reviewing CCTV footage in the search for a group
of men who ''seriously assaulted'' a man on Wanaka's
Senior Constable Ian Henderson said yesterday three or four
local men knocked the man to the ground and kicked him in the
head several times at 12.30am on Monday..
The assault occurred between the Kai Whakapai Cafe and Bar
and the Doughbin Bakery.
''His injuries required an urgent trip to Dunstan Hospital in
an ambulance,'' Sen Const Henderson said.
Police were following some ''strong leads'' into the
identities of the assailants, he said, and he asked anyone
who had witnessed the assault to contact police.
No arrest had been made by late yesterday.
