Nelson Mayor condemns attack on tourists

Nelson Mayor Rachel Reese says the attack on three tourists over the weekend in Nelson is totally unacceptable. It runs completely against the hospitality locals offer our visitors.

“Nelson is, on the whole, a very safe place to visit and the actions of those who attacked our visitors cannot be tolerated. I urge anyone with relevant information to contact the Police immediately by calling (03) 546 3840 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

“We are very proud of our city and region and love sharing it with those who take the time to visit us. Please rest assured that a warm welcome is the norm and this terrible incident is the exception,” Mayor Reese says.
