Published on : Tuesday, November 1, 2016

On Saturday night, two Japanese tourists were assaulted in Rotorua Park that is located in New Zealand. The male victim is suffering from a broken jaw.


The police is hunting for evidence for the incident in which a man and also a woman had been assaulted by three men between 6 p.m. and 6.30 p.m. in Kuirau Park. The attackers had punched the man in his face that left him with a broken jaw. And, they had pushed the woman over.


The attackers are referred to as ‘Maori’ (the indigenous Polynesian people of New Zealand). They were travelling in a blue vehicle.


They had stolen a grey Puma bag that contained some cash, camera, iPhone5 and an iPad Air. A hotel owner of Rotorua said that the incident was really disappointing.


Treen McLeay who is the owner of the Backyard Inn that is close to Kuirau Park said that such incidents would portray a negative image of New Zealand as a tourist locale. Also, the Mayor of Rotorua said that the attack was disturbing. He then went on to say that certain steps should be undertaken to improve the safety of tourists in this region.


Steve Chadwick, the Mayor said that she was proud of the work that she had done with the local police to ensure safety in this tourist destination but then there is always room for improvement.


She also said that there have been no other attacks in Rotorua on tourists of late.
