A man has appeared in the Manukau District Court following an incident at an east Auckland primary school on Tuesday.
The Times understands that police apprehended a 31-year old man at Shelley Park School after receiving reports of concern for his well-being.
Shortly before police arrived it’s believed the man confronted a member of staff, says Inspector Chris Barry, Acting Area Commander, Counties Manukau East.
While police were apprehending the man a taser was discharged, Barry said.
There were no injuries as a result.
The incident took place in the school’s administration area and no children were involved.
The man has been charged with assault and obstructing police. At this stage police cannot rule out further charges being laid.
