Two men who escaped from the Manukau District Court at about 10am yesterday are regarded by Police as dangerous and not to be approached by members of the public.
Perry Bristow, 26, and Vincent Geros, 23, were due to appear in the Court on aggravated robbery charges but escaped while being escorted by security guards from the cells to the Court. They were last seen running across Hayman Park on the western side of Manukau City Centre.
Bristow has links to the South Auckland area (Manurewa/Clendon) and possibly has access to firearms. He's known to have affiliations to the Killer Bees gang.
Geros also has links to the South Auckland area (Mangere/Papatoetoe) and has a history of association with Black Power in Northland.
Anyone with information about their whereabouts or activities should call Police on 111. Anonymous callers can ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
