Hawera police have dealt with several violent offences since Sunday.
A 56-year-old Hawera man was arrested on an animal cruelty charge and a 32-year-old Patea man has been charged with common assault.
Both will appear in the Hawera District Court tomorrow.
A 14-year-old boy from Hawera was also dealt with by police for possessing an offensive weapon. He will be referred to Youth Aid.
Does more need to be done to protect NZ passports?
