A teenager who vaulted the dock at an Auckland District Court has been found by police today.

Authorities found Brandon Pora, 18, at a house in Takanini, South Auckland.

The teen appeared in the Auckland District Court last Thursday after allegedly having previously breached the terms of his electronically monitored bail.

After being told he would be remanded in custody, Pora leapt out of the dock area, evaded the clutches of a guard and ran down an escalator before bolting out of the court's front doors.

He was seen running down Albert St.

The teen is due to again appear in the same court tomorrow on a number of charges -- now including a charge of escaping custody.
