Police are advising people not to approach three dangerous men who are on the run in the Lower Hutt area.

Teariki Leo John Malloy, Dean Kahukiwa and Naran Cherry are wanted for arrest for a range of offences, police said.

Malloy is wanted after failing to appear in court last month. He usually resides in the Petone area and has left his home without probation approval.

Malloy was sentenced to home detention after being convicted of multiple traffic and crime offences.


Police said they believe he is using a silver 1994 Subaru Legacy station wagon in the Moera area of Lower Hutt, and is possibly in possession of a weapon and demonstrating intimidating behaviour.

He is Maori, a patched Mongrel Mob member, 1.72 metres in height, and of medium build with tattoos on his neck, forearms, left hand, legs and chest.

Malloy understood to be in the company of Kahukiwa, who has a warrant for his arrest and is considered dangerous and should not be approached, police said.

Meanwhile, Cherry, of Fairfield, failed to present for his electronic monitoring bracelet to be fitted on June 7.

Police said Cherry has a history of crime and traffic offending, including failing to stop for police.

Information on the whereabouts of Malloy, Kahukiwa and Cherry can be reported to Wellington District Police on phone 021-222-8615.
