Police said a Chinese man was charged with battery on Tuesday after attacking patrons of three New Zealand restaurants with an axe-like weapon, injuring four people.

Police added that authorities went to the site around 9:00 pm (0900 GMT) on Monday after “multiple calls” about the assault on customers of the restaurant.

And local media indicated that the man entered the restaurants, close to each other, and hit some customers with something resembling an axe.
