Man assaulted in Māngere at weekend dies

By Radio New Zealand

A man who was seriously injured during an assault in South Auckland on Saturday has died in hospital.

Counties Manukau Police have upgraded their inquiry to a homicide investigation.

The 31-year-old was attacked on Naylors Drive in Māngere.

Police have charged two men, aged 20 and 23, and say further charges may be laid.

The men are due to appear in Manukau District Court today.

Police said they are following “positive lines of inquiry” in their search for a third man.

They are appealing for anyone with information to get in touch on 105.

They said no gunshots were fired in the assault, despite earlier reports from neighbours who claimed to have heard shots.
