One of two men removed from Eden Park by security after streaking during Friday's Super Rugby opener between the Blues and Highlanders has laid a complaint against a guard, reports Mediaworks.

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, was apprehended by three guards and claims he was assaulted by one after he was taken out of public view following his removal from the field.

A police complaint has been filed, as the streaker required several stitches after he claims one of the guards punched him several times.

A spokesman for Eden Park told Mediaworks they would look into the incident, after only being made aware of the complaint today.

"We don't condone streakers but we certainly don't condone that sort of behaviour either," they said.

"We've taken this up with Platform 4 Group (the security company) and they will be proceeding with the matter with the staff involved."
