A South Auckland teenager ended up on the wrong side of the law, when he jumped the fence into the local police station while trying to escape officers. 

Police were called to the Papakura Countdown supermarket around 6.45pm last night in response to a group of youths who were intimidating customers and washing windows in the carpark.

The group fled from police and one 14-year-old boy evaded officers by climbing over a nearby fence.

Unfortunately for the young man it was the fence of the Papakura Police Station.

"Unsurprisingly, he was quickly apprehended by police staff," said Area Commander Jim Searle.

"Attempting to evade the Police can be dangerous and will often get you into further trouble - but this situation would have to stand out as unusual in the way that this person was caught," said Searle. 

The group of young people have been referred to Youth Aid.
