Add a comment

A 17-year-old woman has been arrested and charged this morning with an attack on an elderly woman in Panmure last week.

The woman has been charged with aggravated robbery, theft and two charges of unlawfully taking a motor-vehicle, and will appear in the Auckland District Court this afternoon.

Detective Senior Sergeant Paul Newman from Auckland City Police said two other suspects have been identified.

The family of the victim Nancy Voon were told of the development a short time ago, and Detective Senior Sergeant Newman said they are understandably relieved to hear this news.

"I would like to thank the hundreds of people who helped with the Police investigation.
The public and media assistance we received has got us to this point.

"We had dozens of calls with information, as well as many private messages to our Facebook page.

Hundreds of people shared the link to the Facebook video.

Police had been investigating a series of burglaries that occurred in Onehunga, Mangere and Mt Albert over the weekend of September 9th and 10th.

Yesterday, a series of search warrants were carried out at properties in Otara, Glen Innes, Papatoetoe, Clendon and Point England.
