Brutal carjacking: Woman still unable to speak to police

The 65-year-old woman who was viciously beaten during a carjacking in Auckland on Wednesday is still unable to talk to police due to the injuries she sustained during the attack.

Her attackers - two girls - are still on the run and work to bring them to justice carries on.

Nancy Voon remains in a stable condition at Auckland City Hospital today, after she was attacked by two girls as she waited for her son outside the Panmure YMCA on Wednesday afternoon.

Voon is yet to speak with police officers because of injuries sustained to her mouth and teeth.

Her son Chee Phua told the Herald his mother was expected to stay in hospital until next week.

Police said this morning investigations into the incident were ongoing and they were yet to make any arrests.

CCTV footage shows the pair, thought to be of Maori or Pacific descent, approaching the vehicle where Voon is.

Voon suffered a broken bone in her face, chipped teeth and bruising on her body after she was kicked in the head and stomach.

Anyone with information regarding the carjacking or attack is asked to contact Glen Innes Police on 09 524 1962

Information can also be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
