Police appeal for help after Halavuna bar attack in South Auckland

    'Oku taupotu 'i lalo ha fakamatala faka-Tonga

    Police are appealing for the public’s help to identify two suspects after two Tongan brothers were seriously injured outside Halavuna bar in south Auckland.

    The victims were outside the bar before they were both assaulted by two men on August 24 at around 1am, Kakalu ‘O Tonga newspaper has reported.

    The victims were taken to hospital after Police and Emergency Services arrived at the scene while at the same time the attackers disappeared and were still at large.

    Police have scrutinised CCTV from across the road at East Tamaki, which they hope will help identify the suspects.

    It is believed the suspects and the victims were inside the bar before the incident occurred.

    It was not immediately clear whether or not the suspects lived in New Zealand or they had just arrived from Tonga, the paper said.

    The paper alleged the attacks in Papatoetoe involved an axe.

    Police investigation continues.
