A 32-year-old Hastings man has been charged with injuring with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, in relation to a serious assault earlier this week.
The assault occurred at a dairy in Gordon Road, Hastings at around 11am on Tuesday 29 March.
The victim was a customer in the dairy and suffered serious facial injuries – including a fractured cheekbone – and concussion.
“This was a savage, unprovoked attack on an innocent member of the public going about his daily business,” says Detective Inspector Dave de Lange, Eastern District Crime Services Manager. 
The victim, an RSE worker, remains in hospital recovering from his injuries.
“In addition to the serious impact this incident has had on the victim, I’m aware it has also affected the victim’s colleagues, and our wider RSE community.”  
“I want to reassure them that this was an isolated event and the offender has been located and will be held to account for his actions.”
