Police are still looking for an 18-year-old man who jumped out of the dock and ran away from the Auckland District Court.

Brandon Pora is facing three charges of aggravated robbery, one of common assault, one of threatening behaviour and assaults with intent to rob.

He was allegedly responsible for four attacks on Asian students in February and March in Waterview.

Pora had just been ordered to be remanded in custody by the judge yesterday afternoon when he broke free from a guard and ran out of the court and down an escalator.

The guard chased him but lost track of Pora as he ran out onto the street.

Police were sent to the scene and the surrounding area but Pora is yet to be found.

Anyone who sees Brandon Pora should call 111 immediately.
