Two men handed themselves in to police after a fight in Wainuiomata which left another man in an induced coma.

A 27-year-old man this morning remains in an induced coma in Wellington Hospital’s intensive care unit after an assault in Wainuiomata in the early hours of yesterday.

Detective Senior Sergeant Dave Thornton, of Hutt Valley police, said two Wainuiomata men, aged 28 and 30, came forward to police last night.

James Teariki Remuera, 30, unemployed, appeared in court this morning charged with assaulting two men.

The 28-year-old man was yet to appear.

Judge Ian Mill remanded Remuera on bail to appear at Lower Hutt District Court later this month.

Police yesterday said four men had been involved in the fight outside the Caltex service station in The Strand just after midnight.

Two men left the scene of the fight at high speed in a blue car.

Police said this morning said no other people were being sought by police.

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