Detective senior sergeant Stan Brown says the clash broke out after a group of people gatecrashed a 21st birthday party in Riverbank Rd on Saturday night. ''There's varying reports about the time it happened,'' Mr Brown says. He says up to 100 people, some armed with pieces of wood, were involved in the brawl. Up to eight people were treated for injuries. A 22-year-old man was taken to hospital with serious brain injuries after he was found in Binsted Rd. He is in a critical condition. Binsted Rd, between Rata St and Delta Ave, was closed for most of Sunday morning while the crime scene was marked out. ''We would like anyone who was at the party, whether they saw anything or not, to contact the Waitakere CIB,'' Mr Brown says. Police made eight arrests. Call Mr Brown on 839-0600 or call the anonymous Crime- stoppers hotline on 0800- 555-111 if you can help police with their inquiries into the incident. Details suppressed A man charged with sex offences who was bailed to live near a school in west Auckland has been granted continued suppression of his address details. Details of the street and su- burb where Dion Selwyn Tau was bailed to live was sup- pressed until his trial begins. Guns and knife in raid By STEPHEN FORBES Robbery: The E-Things $2 shop at Westgate was cordoned off after Friday's aggravated robbery. Inset and right: CCTV footage of two men police want to talk to. A $2 SHOP in Westgate was robbed at gunpoint on Friday, a day after an aggravated robbery at a similar store in Massey. Three men entered the E-Things $2 shop at Westgate at 12.40pm on Friday. Two of the offenders were carrying hand guns and the third was carrying a large knife. They forced the shop assist- ant to open the till and stole about $200 in cash. All three offenders fled across Westgate Drive. Witnesses saw them running through Royal Reserve and they were tracked through Kemp St and Vallance St before they got away. Police say all three offenders were Maori or Poly- nesian youths. On Thursday an aggra- vated robbery occurred at the $2 Happy Family Store in Massey s Chorley Ave. Constable Steve Goodgame says a man entered the shop at 11.55am and demanded money before threatening the shop assistant with a kitchen knife. He took $100 from the till and fled on foot, he says. Mr Goodgame says the offender ran directly behind the back of the shops. He says a police dog hand- ler attended the scene but was unable to pick up a scent. The offender is described as dark skinned, wearing black pants and a black hoodie which he had pulled over his head, a black hat, dark sun- glasses and white shoes. There was CCTV footage, but from what we can gather he looked like he was aware of it and kept his back to the camera, Mr Goodgame says. So getting any identity from that is pretty unlikely. The shop assistant didn t want to be named but says she was shaken by the rob- bery. In August, the Lincoln Heights Superette, which is in the same block of shops on the corner of Chorley Ave and Waimumu Rd, was the target of another aggravated rob- bery. Detective sergeant Callum McNeill says he s keen to hear from anyone with infor- mation on the two incidents. Contact Mr McNeill on 027-275-9896 or call the anonymous Crimestoppers hotline on 0800-555-111 if you can help police.
