4:25 pm on 1 April 2016

Police in Christchurch said they have charged six people in relation to what they describe as a cowardly attack on a man.

The man was injured in the attack by the group at a Riccarton bus stop last month.

Police said they executed search warrants at two homes and found clothing linking the offenders to the attack, along with cannabis plants and ammunition.

A 19 year-old has been charged with assault, and five others aged between 15 to 21 have been charged with wounding with intent.

They will appear in the Christchurch Youth Court on Tuesday.
