By CHRIS HARROWELL APOLICE offcer bashed after pulling over a male motorist remains in hospital with seri- ous injuries and it’s not yet known when he will be back on the beat. Sergeant Simon Tate, of Counties Manukau East Police, was working alone when allegedly assaulted last Saturday night by a man in San- drine Avenue, Otara. The 42-year-old was taken to Middlemore Hospital by ambu- lance with serious head injuries after being set upon from behind at about 11.30pm. Following the vicious attack, police released the name and photo of a man sought in relation to the violent incident, 36-year- old Otara resident Walter George Tauatevalu. Detective inspector Jim Gal- lagher, of Counties Manukau Police, is leading the investigation into the assault on Mr Tate. He says it’s too early to predict when the injured police offcer will be released from hospital. “The hope and expectation is that he will be able to make a full recovery and return to work,” Mr Gallagher told the Times. “There is defnitely a feeling of shock within Counties Manukau Police that one of our own could be subject to this type of attack.” Mr Gallagher says Mr Tate suf- fered fractured eye sockets and cheekbones in the attack, as well as “signifcant damage” to his throat. “From the information I have, our offcer is very lucky to be alive,” he says. “He will likely need several months of medical attention after being attacked from behind, knocked to the ground and repeat- edly kicked in the head while down.” The incident began when Mr Tate followed a motor vehicle from outside a function at the Manukau Sports Bowl in Te Irirangi Drive, Otara, to Sandrine Ave. He stopped the vehicle and spoke with its driver. When Mr Tate went to talk to the vehicle’s passenger, he was assaulted. “Thankfully, two women who had followed the police offc- er’s patrol car from the function stopped and intervened during the attack,” says Mr Gallagher. “They could well have saved his life.” The male suspect left the area on foot before additional police offc- ers and St John Ambulance para- medics arrived at the scene. Mr Tate received specialist med- ical treatment earlier this week and was expected to undergo surgery yesterday in Auckland Hospital. After public appeals by police for information on Tauatevalu’s whereabouts, he handed himself in to investigators at about 9pm last Sunday. The wanted man appeared in the Manukau District Court on Mon- day charged with attempted mur- der and two counts of assaulting a female. Tauatevalu was remanded in police custody to appear in the Auckland High Court on Septem- ber 27. Mr Tate’s partner Lisa Ross has expressed appreciation on social media website Facebook for sup- port she’s received since the grue- some attack. “I’d like to thank our amazing families here in New Zealand and in the United States, our friends, our police family and the public,” wrote Ms Ross, a police constable. “Your support has blown me away and words cannot express how I feel.” A Facebook page, entitled Show Your Support for Simon Tate, has received almost 5500 likes. TARGETED: Police sergeant Simon Tate and his partner, constable Lisa Ross.
