RES­I­DENTS THREAT­ENED

Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Po­lice have re­leased pho­tos of two youths who were ac­cused of threat­en­ing res­i­dents in cen­tral Auck­land. Po­lice say res­i­dents were al­legedly threat­ened af­ter they had ap­proached the pair re­gard­ing the noise they were cre­at­ing from the PA speak­ers fixed to their bikes. Con­sta­ble Don Al­lan says po­lice re­ceived a num­ber of com­plaints about the twoma­les who were seen rid­ing around One­hunga Mall and the bus de­pot. Po­lice have since iden­ti­fied the pair and have con­fis­cated their speak­ers. Al­lan says it’s vi­tal res­i­dents call 111 if they ex­pe­ri­ence any­thing sim­i­lar. ‘‘Re­gard­less of po­lice availability th­ese calls will pro­vide in­tel­li­gence around this ac­tiv­ity, such as time, place, and lo­ca­tions, mak­ing it eas­ier to de­ploy staff to those re­peat lo­ca­tions,’’ he says.
