Two patched Mongrel Mob members entered a Taranaki woman’s home claiming they were looking for someone who owed a debt.

They were 29-year-old Manis Taueki-Watson and a teenaged co-offender. When the woman told them the person they were looking for was not there the two gang members entered the house. Taueki-Watson sat next to the woman on the couch.
He asked the woman to perform oral sex on him. She declined. Taueki-Watson exposed his genitals and demanded the woman do as he say. Fearing for her safety she eventually complied.
He then performed a degrading act on her as the teenaged co-offender watched.
Afterwards the two gang members went through the woman’s house and garage, taking $135 from her purse, a television and a phone charger. They began smashing items in the garage with a hammer. A member of the public called police who found the men on the property.
Taueki-Watson was sentenced on Friday in the New Plymouth District for the crimes which took place on 29 January last year.
He initially denied any wrong-doing when found by police, but later pleaded guilty to a charge of unlawful sexual connection with a female over the age of 16.
He was jailed for 4 years and 10 months, while his co-offender was dealt with in the Youth Court.
