A police cordon was in place at a property on the corner of Chatham Road and Flaxmere Avenue this morning.

A police spokeswoman confirmed Hawke's Bay Police were investigating a gang-related attack at a Flaxmere home that occurred at about 10pm on August 9.

"Two people were assaulted during the incident and received minor injuries. Five vehicles were damaged.
