Assault figures are a country wide problem - Wellington charity

From Morning Report, 8:44 am on 22 October 2020

Wellington Rape Crisis says no particular scene or culture has issues with assault, it's a country wide problem.

New data shows assaults are ten times more likely to occur in central Wellington than the rest of New Zealand.

Over lockdown, the number of assaults dropped around Cuba St and Courtney Place but they are back on the rise.

Kyla Rayner is the General Manager for Wellington Rape Crisis.
