NEW ZEALAND police yesterday confirmed arresting the 26-year-old man alleged to have attacked a Fiji born woman in Papatoetoe, Auckland last month.

In a statement sent to this newspaper by the Auckland police, Lual Makur Lual, was arrested by the Manukau police yesterday morning after absconding bail on Friday.

"Mr Lual was wanted on warrant for failing to appear in the Manukau District Court on a charge of injuring with intent to cause grievous bodily harm in relation to a January incident during which a woman was allegedly assaulted while out walking in Papatoetoe," the statement read.

It further stated that Mr Lual was expected to appear tomorrow at the Manukau District Court where police will oppose bail.

The 40-year-old complainant, Praveet Singh, was alleged to have been beaten up by Mr Lual during one of her pre-dinner walks.

Ms Singh is alleged to have been assaulted while many people looked on. She sustained a broken nose, fractured eye sockets and extensive bruising from the attack.
