An 18-year-old man was taken to Auckland Hospital after a stabbing in West Hoe Road, Ōrewa on Saturday, February 13.
The same day, in relation to this incident, another young man was arrested and charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
He is on bail with a number of conditions and will next appear in the North Shore Youth Court on March 10. Police continue to make enquiries into the circumstances of the incident.
A few days later, on February 18, a woman was threatened at knifepoint while in her vehicle on Florence Avenue, Ōrewa. A man got into the car, allegedly pulled out a large knife and ordered her to get out.
The victim, who is in her 70s, removed the keys from the ignition and escaped the vehicle, then sought help from a member of the public to call Police. The alleged offender fled the scene on foot.
Enquiries by Police resulted in a man being identified the following day. A 31-year-old man was arrested and charged with assault with intent to rob and appeared on February 22 in the North Shore District Court.
