At around 6.15pm a vehicle failed to stop for Police when signalled to do so, on Pilkington Road, Glen Innes.

The vehicle fled and was followed to a property on Panorama Road, Mt Wellington.

At the property Police quickly took one person into custody and then worked to locate a second person who had hidden in the property.

The second person resisted arrest and assaulted two officers in the process, before being taken into custody. Charges are being considered.

The two officers were transported to Auckland Hospital, both with moderate injuries.

The officers and their families are receiving support and Police enquiries into the incident are ongoing.
