The teenager was brutally beaten up in Rolleston before being dragged to a water race and pushed under. Police are following strong leads in identifying the attackers. Said Senior Sergeant Pete Stills: “He has received a real pasting. His eyes were swollen shut and he needed stitches for a pretty serious gash underneath his chin,” he said. “It was a harrowing attack by a group on a lone individual, “completely unprovoked and cowardly”. The attack appears to have been robbery-motivated. Four youths approached the 15-year-old on Tennyson St, Rolleston, at about 10.30pm and demanded his cap, Senior Sergeant Stills said. He had earlier been at a nearby fireworks event in Foster Park. When he refused to hand over the cap, the group repeatedly punched him and kicked him on the ground. They dragged him to a nearby water drain and held his head under the water. •Turn to page 9 BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored... Restore your oiled CEDAR BLINDS with our NEW re-oiling service.
