Police were seeking sightings of two after boarding a train for non-essential travel.

This involved a woman spitting at Auckland Transport workers. The incident took place on a train at Britomart Transport Centre yesterday morning.

The woman was traveling with a male companion when she spat at an Auckland Transport worker after being asked to leave the train, due to the fact they were not undertaking essential travel.

Police are appalled at this type of behavior, especially in the current environment, which places essential workers at risk. This type of behavior will not be tolerated by the Police.

Anyone with information about the identity of these people is asked to contact Auckland City Police on 105 quoting file number 200417/7577 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

“We want to remind the public that Alert Level 4 restrictions are still in place and travel should only be made for essential purposes. Police will continue to be patrolling the streets ensuring the public is abiding by these restrictions,” said New Zealand Police in a statement.
