Five Arrested Following Disorder, Taupō

Taupō Police have made five arrests following a large disorder incident at the Richmond Shops yesterday around 1pm.

Several members of the public called Police after witnessing a group fighting.

One person was allegedly armed with a baseball bat and others had a barstool and chair.
