Six young teenagers have been arrested following an attack and robbery of a woman leaving the Papakura train station on December 15
Six teenagers, some aged as young as 13 have been arrested after they attacked and robbed a young woman in Papakura.
Tian Wang, 23, was attacked near the Papakura Train Station on December 15 after she got off a train at 11pm.
She had been on her way home from work at a restaurant in Newmarket when she was attacked by the group of teens who had been on same train.
They stole her cellphone and stripped her shoes from her.
When she did not arrive home her worried father drove to the station looking for her. He found her lying in the station carpark, beaten so badly he could barely recognise her.
A police spokeswoman said six teenagers aged from 13 to 16 had now been arrested in relation to the attack and robbery.
"They've all been charged with aggravated robbery and have been remanded in youth custody facilities," she said.
Wang was now recovering at home but could require further surgery, she said.
The six youths will appear in the Papakura Youth Court on January 8.
