Attribute to Superintendent Karyn Malthus, Auckland City District Commander:
Police acknowledge the findings of an Independent Police Conduct Authority report into the use of force during an arrest in Auckland last year.
Just after midnight on 21 June 2020, Police came across a man spray-painting on a wall in Hopetoun Street, Auckland City. When officers stopped to speak to the man, he ran off but was quickly apprehended.
The IPCA agreed it was reasonable for Police to apprehend the offender and bring him to the ground in order to make an arrest.
