Kāpiti Mana Police Area Commander Inspector Renee Perkins says two youths have been charged in relation to recent violent offending targeting young people in and around Wellington regional railway stations.

“Investigations are ongoing to identify any further offending, seek witnesses or others involved.”

Inspector Perkins says Police are working with their partners to ensure people can be safe and feel safe while using public transport.

Kāpiti Mayor Janet Holborow says she is very concerned at the seriousness of recent offending.

“My thoughts go out to the victims of these assaults and their families. We will be looking hard at what we can do as a council to support our young people in the district and the agencies surrounding them to improve safety for our community.”

Inspector Perkins says anyone who has concerns about criminal activity is urged to contact Police on 111 if it is happening now, or 105 if it is after the fact.
