SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Wednesday November 22 2017 7 News ‘Drown him’ case continues • By Andrew King POLICE APPEAR to be closing in the youths who chanted “drown him” during the brutal assault of a teenager. The 15-year-old victim was viciously attacked by a group in Rolleston after a fireworks display on November 4. They dragged him to a water race and held his head under water. Some in the group chanted “drown him”. The Selwyn Times has learned police have been given names of suspects and private Facebook messages of an apology to Bid to stop illegal taking of water •From page 1 Companies are charged $0.44 per 1000L. Extractions are detected by the district council’s online systems. The district council will also use media campaigns to dissuade people from engaging in illegal extraction. But Mr Thomas said like other council areas, there are sporadic instances of unauthorised extraction of water in Selwyn. “The district council is working on a process framework for extraction of water by entities other than land developers,” she said. The Rolleston resident said if other people knew about the issue, residents can try and get these companies held to account. “Tankers can pull up and nobody notices them much and they skulk off with all our water we are paying for,” the resident said. She said it irked her tankers were pulling up and taking water with no restrictions and she often LAwyERS the victim. The four suspects are all teenagers. However, police are refusing to reveal where the investigation is at. On Monday, Detective Sergeant Joanne Parks said the investigation was “ongoing”. Many people have posted about the incident online, including friends of the victim, who believe they know who the attackers were, said the victim’s mother. A friend of the family posted a message on their behalf, which received more than 600 reactions and a number of saw litres of water spilt over the ground. “I don’t want to see a tanker right next to my meter taking thousands of litres for free while I am paying for every litre I use,” the resident said. If residents see companies taking water, they can email water.services@ selwyn.govt.nz Meanwhile, there is no immediate need for mandatory water restrictions. However, the district council is asking residents to consider changing the comments offering support and condemning the attack. “It was amazing to see how many people came up to us,” she said. The victim is a talented sportsman, his mother, who did not want to be named, said. The attack appears to have been robberymotivated. After being dragged to the water race, he broke free of his attackers and ran off, collapsing close to his home. The 15-year-old spent the night in Christchurch Hospital. •Local Views, p17 lawn irrigation timing to keep water networks stable.
