1 min read

Police have today executed a search warrant at a property in Flat Bush following a report of vandalism on the rainbow pedestrian crossing on Karangahape Road this morning.

Auckland City Central Area Commander, Inspector Grant Tetzlaff, says Police made a number of enquiries into the incident this afternoon and located items of interest.

“Police attended an address in Flat Bush, which was believed to be linked to the owners of the registered vehicle.

“As a result of our enquiries, a number of items were seized.

“However, Police are yet to locate the vehicle involved.”

The Police investigation into the incident remains ongoing.

“We are calling on those responsible for this incident to come forward and speak with us.

“We are aware of the hurt and confusion from the community at what has occurred and we want to reassure the public we are committed to holding those involved to account,” Inspector Tetzlaff says.

“Police have no tolerance for reports of this nature, which appear to directly target a particular sector of our diverse community, and we are treating this as a hate crime.”

As our enquiries are ongoing, Police continue to ask anyone with information on the vehicle or persons pictured to contact Police via our 105 phone service or online at, using Update My Report.

Please reference file number 240328/6111.
