Updated – Police seeking ‘aggressive man’ following series of incidents in central Auckland overnight

Auckland Police would like to hear from anyone that was confronted by a man around Britomart in Auckland City last night.

He was acting aggressively towards others.

In one incident a group was confronted by the man in the vicinity of Tyler Street and Queen Street around 2:30am.

The man allegedly pulled a tyre iron from his trousers and started swinging it at the group, hitting at least one person.

The man has also punched another person, causing them to fall to the ground.

Anyone that was involved in one of these incidents or had a similar experience is encouraged to come forward and speak with Police.

This behaviour will not be tolerated by Police and we would like to hold this person accountable for their actions.

Information can be given by contacting the Auckland City Crime Squad on 09 3026557 and quoting file number 220918/8757.

Update, Monday 19 September

Police have charged a man following an appeal for a man confronting members of the public around Britomart.

A series of incidents occurred in the early hours of Sunday.

A 23-year-old man has now been charged by Police over the incident.

He is due to appear in the Auckland District Court today (Monday) on charges of assault and intentional damage.

  1. No description. Once there was height, perhaps weight, a description of the clothing, identifying marks or tattoos, hair colour, skin colour, facial hair, eye colour if you got close enough to see. Now we are told it was a man. Next I expect it will be a person so as not to upset the woke. Police: We are looking for an aggressive person somewhere in the vicinity of Auckland.
