A white motor vehicle then arrived and an adult Maori or Pacific Islander male alighted and struck the forty-year-old to his head causing him to fall to the ground. Two of the teenage boys then attacked the two males resulting in the forty-year-old sustaining serious head injuries and the thirty-two-year-old cuts and abrasions.
