Tag­gers chased from roof of cafe

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Van­dals struck at Gar­net Sta­tion cafe early on Labour Day, the third in­ci­dent in a week.

Own­ers Ver­ity Ge­orge and Lisa Prager, who live on-site, were wo­ken at 4.45am by tag­gers on the roof of the cafe.

Ms Prager chased the group of youths to where a get­away car was wait­ing up the road.

The graf­fiti was painted over im­me­di­ately.

The cafe’s front win­dows were smashed in two in­ci­dents the week prior – once with rocks and then with a base­ball bat three days later.

Ms Ge­orge sus­pects a youth gang is be­hind the at­tacks. She hopes now they have “eye­balled” the van­dals, they won’t be back.
