Two of the Rotorua supermarket attackers have been arrested:

Two women have been arrested after a video of three women attacking Countdown staff went viral on YouTube.

The video shows two Countdown Rotorua staff trying to grab bags from a group of women as they try to leave the store. They verbally abuse the staff, kick them and hit them over the head.

The video has been uploaded to video sharing website YouTube and social networking website Facebook.

It has had over 15,000 views since being posted.

It was taken by a Rotorua man who was sitting in a vehicle outside Countdown Rotorua on Fenton St and uploaded to Facebook on January 4. Since then it has been spread around Rotorua, New Zealand and Australia via the internet and attracted many negative comments from Rotorua people angered by the women’s actions.

Rotorua Police said two women, a 50-year-old and a 30-year-old, both from Rotorua, have been charged with aggravated assault and theft, and will appear in the Rotorua District Court on January 15.
