Three teenagers have been attacked and robbed in a Wainuiomata alleyway.

The incident happened at about 10.20pm on Saturday night, Detective Iain Burns of the Hutt Valley CIB said.

The males were walking through an alleyway from Heath Grove to Moohan Street when they were approached from behind by a group of three to four Maori or Polynesian males.‘‘The offenders caught the victims by surprise and assaulted them, while making demands for personal property. Items were stolen from the victims and one of them suffered facial injuries.’’

The attackers were aged about 20 and may have been using a red Jeep Cherokee.

"Police are seeking information from anyone in Wainuiomata area who may know the identity of these males, or may have seen a red Jeep Cherokee in the Wainuiomata area over Saturday night".

Anyone with information should contact the Hutt Valley Police on (04) 560 2600 or phone Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
