Police crime prevention advice for the week:
Late evening about 3 weeks ago a female youth was approached by a two males at Adams Street. The males confronted her and were threatening. One of the males assaulted her by grabbing her arm and touching her back. She was able to escape the males without injury or physical harm. The incident was a frightening experience for the young female victim who in this case had a legitimate reason for being out after dark. Police advice to parents of young people is that in general they should not be out and about roaming streets after dark alone unless in the company of a parent or guardian. Police can detain and return young people to their parents in certain situations. In the unlikely circumstances that a youth or child is accosted on the street by a stranger, do not engage with the stranger and if you feel threatened, make as much noise as possible by shouting repeatedly for help, do not remain, instead run to safety. Try to remember people descriptions, vehicles and other important information that will assist police. Always report incidents of this nature to police 111 immediately. If anyone has information about this incident please contact Waihi Police.
