Palmerston North man Zane Moana Rigby, 19, has appeared in Palmerston North District Court on a charge of robbing two Austrian tourists of their Toyota van.

The two tourists were travelling through Palmerston North on Saturday at 1am when they stopped the van at an intersection.

They were then ordered outside by a group of men and one of the tourists was assaulted with a bottle and left lying on the footpath, bleeding, while the other ran for help.

Rigby was yesterday remanded in custody without plea and will reappear on Thursday.
