At least four attacks on Asian students reported in Auckland last week
“The spate of aggravated robberies have targeted international students —using extensive violence to take handbags, phones, laptops, bank cards and shoes,” according to a report.
In the latest series of attacks, multiple male and female Chinese and Japanese students studying at University of Auckland and Unitec have been targeted.
In the most recent incident, which occurred on Monday evening, four youths were arrested after trying to steal a handbag from a young [Asian] woman who was walking along Khyber Pass near the corner of Broadway in Newmarket. The young woman was pushed to the ground [and was left heavily bruised] during the incident, police said. http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/police-concerned-student-assaults
