Two arrests after Hastings assault

Hawke’s Bay Police have arrested two people in relation to a gang-related serious assault.

A District Organised Crime Group investigation into the assault, which occurred at a licensed premise in Ahuriri on 18 May, led to officers conducting search warrants at two properties in the Hastings suburb of Flaxmere yesterday.

A dozen local Police staff were assisted by specialist groups, including members of the the Armed Offenders Squad.

As a result, two senior members of the Mongrel Mob, aged 27 and 33, were arrested.
