Members of the Christchurch community may have noticed an increased Police presence in the Bexley area, as the Police investigation into Monday’s serious assault continues.

Yesterday Police have been conducting search warrants at properties in the area.

Police can confirm that an 18-year-old man appeared in Christchurch District Court yesterday charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and has been remanded in custody ahead of a further court appearance.

A 23-year-old woman is due to appear in Christchurch District Court today (18 November), charged as an accessory after the fact.
