Police seek teenager over city assaults

A teenager is wanted by police for his alleged involvement in two early-morning assaults in central Dunedin yesterday.

The first incident came after an altercation between two groups near Moray Pl just after 3am, Acting Senior Sergeant Paul McLaughlan said.

A male is alleged to have punched another young male in the head, before leaving the scene with another youth.

The offender was described as a teenage Maori around 182cm tall, and wearing a basketball top.

The same youth later became involved in an altercation at the Octagon taxi stand at 4.43pm.

Sgt McLaughlan said in the second incident the youth was alleged to have punched and kicked the male victim, before leaving.
