Several people were arrested after police were attacked at a party in Gisborne just before midnight on Saturday.

Two officers were called to the party on Bryce Street by a security guard who had responded to a noise complaint.

Partygoers attacked the officers, kicking one in the foot and hitting another with a bottle.

Several back-up patrols and a dog handler were called.

One of the partygoers was arrested for assaulting a police officer, and four or five others were arrested for disorder.
