    A Christchurch man who brutally beat a service station worker -- has permanent name suppression

    A Christchurch man who brutally beat a service station worker -- has permanent name suppression


    68 year old Maia Tirikatene was working a night shift at the Edgeware Rd BP last May -- when the 20-year-old viciously attacked her.

    The man pleaded guilty to assault and theft charges in November.

    The court heard he'd taken an illicit drug and was suffering from automatism -- and acted unconsciously during the attack.

    Judge David Saunders has granted a discharge without conviction - subject to the man engaging with the Tirikatene family through the Restorative Justice process -- and paying reparation to his victim.
