Police Investigating Te Awamutu Assault Appeal For Information

Waikato Police investigating how a Ngatea woman suffered life threatening injuries in Te Awamutu over the weekend are appealing for information from the public.

Waikato CIB Rural Supervisor, Detective Senior Sergeant Mike Whitehead, said 19-year-old Ashleigh Maree HOLLISTER remains in Waikato Hospital's Intensive Care Unit in an induced coma, her condition is described as critical.

Mr Whitehead said the enquiry was focused on accounting for Ashleigh's activities from late Friday evening through to when she was picked up by an ambulance at 5.20am Saturday.

"We're talking to and accounting for everyone she had contact with over this period and have established she was at the Ale House on Arawata St from late Friday night till about 2am.

"She then went to an address in Swarbrick Dr where she was staying for the weekend before leaving there to walk to an address in Albert Park Dr."

Mr Whitehead said as is often the case in such enquiries a considerable amount of the investigators time is being spent on sorting out fact from rumours and he asked that anyone who may have information that might assist the case to contact Te Awamutu Police on 07 8720100.

"We ask that they don't make any judgment about what they know or have heard and should leave it to the Police to establish if their information is relevant.
