Brendon Pernell Whatuira
Mr Whatuira, who is aged 39, went to his parents’ house on the day of the attack and asked his elderly father for a ride into town later in the day to enable him to attend an appointment. His father agreed to take him but indicated that they
would have to go at the time of the request rather than later, as Mr Whatuira’s father had other plans for that time. An argument developed and whilst the father was leaning into the boot of the car, Mr Whatuira punched him in the face. He then picked up a hammer from the boot and followed his father, who had begun to walk away. He told his father he was going to kill him, then struck him on the elbow with the hammer. The father grabbed the hammer so Mr Whatuira then picked up his mountain bike and also threw that at his father, hitting him on the arm. His father retreated and called the Police.
Mr Whatuira has 37 previous convictions, 17 of them being in the nature of assault or threatening behaviour.
