    The woman had been traveling East, in the left hand lane, and passing underneath the Royal Road overbridge.
    At around 9.38am, a projectile has come through the vehicle’s windscreen and struck her in the face.

    The driver was initially taken to Auckland City Hospital with serious injuries, but is now in a stable condition. Her injuries are not life threatening.

    Attribute to Detective Senior Sergeant Callum McNeill, Waitemata CIB:
    Waitemata Police are continuing to investigate what we now believe to be four linked random attacks on women on walking tracks in Auckland.
    The first incident occurred on 10 October 2019, at about 7.45am, where a woman was jogging along a walkway in Murrays Bay when a male grabbed her from behind.
    She has been thrown to the ground and has received multiple injuries including a broken collarbone and concussion.
    Two weeks later on Thursday 24th October, a woman was jogging in the same area at around 10.45am when she was assaulted.
    The victim was located on the ground by a member of the public with injuries including a broken nose.
    Waitemata Police now believe the same man may be responsible for a very similar assault on a woman walking in Moire Park, Massey at around 6.30pm on Saturday 26th October. The victim received facial injuries and bruising.
    On Friday 8th November at about 4.40pm, the latest victim was running along a walkway between Browns Bay Road and Beechwood Road.
    As she approached a set of stairs there was a man off to the side of the walkway. The victim was then attacked by the man and thrown to the ground.
    She was then punched multiple times in the head by the man before he ran off towards Beechwood Road. She received multiple injuries including a dislocated shoulder.
