Five people have been injured in a random knife attack in Murrays Bay on Auckland’s North Shore.
A man wearing a hoodie and carrying a large knife attacked strangers in the normally peaceful seaside suburb. Bystanders managed to subdue the man until police arrived, and he was taken into custody.
Media are awaiting an update from Waitematā District Commander, Superintendent Naila Hassan, scheduled to start at 2.45pm.
Update to follow.
