Mum brings in two teenage sons to cops over Kaikohe raid




A mum has brought her two teenage sons into the Kaikohe police station following an incident in the Northland town last Friday night.

The two young men, aged 15 and 14 years old, were identified following the release of CCTV video footage of a mob of youths attacking a Kaikohe Service Station.

The identification of the two boys brings the total of young people identified over the incident to five.

Two young men were dealt with by police on Friday night, and another young man was spoken to after his grandmother recognised him in the footage and dobbed him in.

According to Inspector Al Symonds, Northland Police, all five boys have been referred to Youth Aid for shoplifting and wilful damage.

Mr Symonds said further enquiries as to who was involved in Friday night's shoplifting and wilful damage incidents are ongoing.

"We're really thankful to the whanau members for their help, they do not want this type of behaviour in the Kaikohe community and the community will no doubt see this as a positive sign," said Mr Symonds.

Mr Symonds said there will be an increased police presence focusing on youth activity in the Kaikohe area over the next few weekends.
