Add a comment

The Mount Maunganui man who needed part of his ear surgically reattached after a serious assault this week has been discharged from hospital.

The 27-year-old was taken to Waikato Hospital on Monday following a fight at a Links Ave home about 7pm the night before.

Police said most of the man's ear had been cut off and a weapon believed to be responsible was seized.

A 15-year-old was arrested in relation to the fight. He is expected to appear in Tauranga Youth Court next week.

A Waikato Hospital spokeswoman said the man had been discharged yesterday.
