Attack victims thank public

The victims of the Dunedin supermarket stabbing have thanked the public for their support.

Three people remained in Dunedin Hospital yesterday, following last Monday’s stabbing at the Countdown Dunedin Central store. A fourth victim was discharged from hospital on Friday.

In a statement issued through police yesterday, the victims passed on their thanks and gratitude for the support they have been shown over the past week.

"The four victims have received messages of support from both the wider Dunedin community and around New Zealand.

"As they come to terms with what happened and begin to heal both physically and mentally, this support and aroha has been greatly appreciated."
