Safety concerns in parts of Central Christchurch

From Morning Report, 8:52 am on 20 October 2022

People say they don't feel safe in parts of central Christchurch, where brawls, assaults and theft have become commonplace.

An 18-year-old appeared in the district court yesterday facing an assault charge after a man was left in a critical condition in a popular shopping spot on Cashel Street.

Police say they will soon step up patrols.
