Four men appeared in court yesterday facing serious assault charges after a Boxing Day party in New Plymouth got out of hand.

A 43-year-old man suffered bruising and cuts to his face and other parts of his body after he was allegedly attacked by the men.

Police were called to the Lemon St house about 8.20pm, Senior Sergeant Allan Whaley said.

Two females were abused and beer bottles were smashed before a neighbour went to their assistance.

"He was attacked by two males, without warning, and then two more males joined in," Mr Whaley said.

What do you think of NZC's decision not to host T20 at Pukekura Park?

Typical. Always overlooked in favour of the big smoke

Just shows what a waste of time paying for those nets was

Gutted. T20 at the Park is a new summer tradition

Good call. NZC's got to pay those bills

Pleased. T20 is a bastardized version of the game. Bring on the one-dayers

I hate cricket. Watching grass grow is preferable
