A 68-year-old man faces a charge of indecent assault and inducing an indecent act.

A 69-year-old man has been charged with indecent assault.

A 72-year-old man faces four charges relating to indecent assault.

Police are limited in providing any further comment as people are now before the Court.

We are also mindful of the privacy of the victims involved in these matters.

These men are next expected to appear on 5 and 6 October in the Auckland District Court.

Police are encouraging anyone who may have information that may further assist our enquiries or have matters they wish to discuss about this offending to contact us.
