Tongan man jailed for 'senseless and unprovoked' attack that cost victim an eye

Senior Sergeant Mark Clayton said Sione Moala was sentenced in the High Court at Auckland on Tuesday after attacking a man outside a bar in April 2016.

Moala was given the two-and-a-half year sentence after being found guilty of wounding with intent to injure and fighting in a public place.

He would not be eligible for parole, Clayton said.

Clayton said Moala had approached a man he didn't know outside a central Auckland bar and in a "senseless and unprovoked attack", left him seriously injured.
