Flood with a shovel. Any details/interviews/documents surrounding the 
alleged assault.  
I am referencing this article.
This matter is currently stil  under investigation, therefore your request has been 
refused in full under the following grounds of the OIA: 
• section 9(2)(a), to protect the privacy of natural persons
• section 6(c), as the making available of the information is likely to
prejudice the maintenance of the law including the prevention,
investigation and detection of offences and the right to a fair trial.
Police considers that the interest requiring protection by withholding the 
information is not outweighed by any public interest in its release.

satisfied with the response to your request. Information about how to make a
