Mike McRoberts, Paula Penfold appeal for help after daughter assaulted at Six60 concert

Newshub presenter Mike McRoberts has appealed for help as police look to identify the man who assaulted his daughter and one other young person at a Six60 concert earlier this year. 

Police have asked any member of the public that recognises the man in photographs from the February concert at Auckland's Western Springs to get in touch.

McRoberts echoed that call on Twitter, explaining that his daughter had been involved. 

"I’d really appreciate any help with this, one of the two young people assaulted was my daughter. Please share, and if you have any information call the police. Thank you," he wrote. 

McRoberts' former partner Paula Penfold wrote a similar tweet, hoping to track down her daughter's attacker. 

The plea for information follows the arrest of a 25-year old man in April. He was charged with assault with intent to injure after two young people were attacked at the concert at Western Springs Stadium, reports Stuff.

McRoberts' tweet was met with messages of support from his followers, who sent their condolences to his daughter. 

"I'm so sorry to hear this. Best wishes to her for healing and resolution/justice," one Twitter user wrote. 

"Absolutely disgusting that this type of thing happens," wrote another. 

One outraged tweet called the perpetrators "scum", adding that they hoped they would be caught soon.
