Add a comment

The man accused of stabbing his former partner in a domestic incident in Te Puke on Sunday night will remain behind bars for another 15 days.
Kaahu Hiriam Grey, 25, appeared in Tauranga District Court today facing a charge of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
Grey was remanded in custody by consent until October 1.
Today, police continued to investigate the scene at the Donovan St house.
Grey was arrested on Monday but Detective Senior Sergeant Greg Turner said police still needed help from the Te Puke community, and were looking for a filleting knife, set of house and car keys that might have been ditched.
The stabbing occurred at 9.30pm on Sunday.
The female victim suffered two stab wounds to the chest, bruises and swelling about her face and head. The injuries were not considered life-threatening.
Police want to speak to anyone who may have seen a silver station wagon in Te Puke town Sunday night between 9.30pm and midnight, or anyone else with information.
Anyone with information relevant to this investigation is asked to contact
Tauranga Police on 07 577 4300. Alternatively information can be provided anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
