A supermarket in central Auckland was closed after a dramatic incident on Saturday night involving police.
The Countdown store in Victoria St shut its doors just before 8pm for about 30 minutes while a pool of blood was cleaned up.
Police said they located a person in central Auckland in breach of their conditions. The person then fled into the supermarket.

"The person caused a scene in the store and, unfortunately, fell while running erratically around the supermarket."
Joanne Mercader, 59, was arrested and charged with battery on a person 65 or older after she threw a bucket of human feces on her landlord, according to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies responded to a trailer in Osteen, near Deltona in Central Florida, around 5:15 p.m. Saturday where they found a woman dripping in human waste and Mercader with caked feces on her face, the agency says.
Mercader originally claimed to be the victim, initially telling deputies that her landlord had tossed the bucket of feces onto her “as a method of eviction,” the incident report says.
“My landlord just broke into my house and assaulted me,” Mercader said, according to the body cam footage.
When asked why she had dried feces smeared across her cheeks, she attempted to explain her appearance.
“She took the poop and rubbed it all over [my face],” Mercader said.
Deputies, however, were confused, especially after she admitted that this was part of her ongoing dispute with the landlord.
“In a long time that I’ve been doing this job, I’ve never seen anything like it, okay?” the deputy replied. “I’m not disputing what you’re telling me but... she’s dripping with it, soaking wet. [Yours] is not.”
Mercader later confessed to accidentally throwing the bucket at the landlord “as soon as she entered the residence,” according to the report. The toss, however, wasn’t an accident — it was the contents.
“Joanne claimed she intended to use a bucket of water but got the two buckets confused,” the deputy wrote.
Jail records show Mercader posted her bond late Sunday morning. Her arraignment is scheduled for Jan. 29.

Wuhan, where cases of coronavirus were first reported before the outbreak spread across the world, has been dubbed “zombieland” by desperate locals.
Overcrowded hospitals, people dropping in the middle of the street, dying citizens treated in gardens because there is no room in the hospital, police bullying people into ambulances, 2-day old corpses under blankets it's like a bad nightmare these poor people can't wake up from.
The Chinese Government is acting quickly, not to find a cure or aid the spread of the Coronavirus, but rather stop the leaks of videos like this one, which show the true nightmare going on in regions of China. These images leaked the past 48 hours look like scenes from a terrifying, apocalyptic Hollywood movie.
A nurse working on the 'frontline' trying to save patients from the deadly coronavirus has broken down in tears after realizing she will have to spend Chinese New Year in hospital.
Footage taken inside what appears to be a communal restroom captures a hopeless nurse crying loudly as she yells: "I can't take this anymore!"
Her colleagues can be seen going over to comfort her while she cries her lungs out.
A group of five or six group nurses are seen sobbing quietly while having their food.
Another video has leaked out of China, this time a phone call from a nurse in Wuhan.
The desperate woman explains how the hospital is overflowing with patients, understaffed and has no supplies to treat them with.
When the hospital tells government officials about the situation, they simply tell them it's their problem, to solve it on their own, washing their hands of the situation.
Several videos have leaked out now showing the situation with the coronavirus is much worse than the Chinese government is reporting, leading many to question its truthfulness.
The accusations of a cover-up echo the furor surrounding the SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) epidemic in 2002 when the government concealed the existence of the illness not just from the outside world but from its own people.
A nurse wearing a protective suit and face mask treating the sick in Wuhan has claimed that 90,000 people have already been infected by the coronavirus in China – far more than the figure of just 1,975 issued by government officials.
Her warning from the heart of the outbreak emerged as the Chinese government faced accusations of censoring criticism of its handling of the disease in order to play down the crisis.
The outbreak of the new virus originated in China, where it has infected more than 1,970 people and killed 56, and has spread worldwide.
Speaking in video footage seen online, the unnamed woman says: ‘I’m in the area where the coronavirus started. I’m here to tell the truth. At this moment, Hubei province, including Wuhan area, even China, 90,000 people have been infected by coronavirus.’

Startling footage has emerged from a hospital at the epicenter of the new coronavirus outbreak in central China, apparently showing bodies covered by sheets.
The video, believed to show the inside of Wuhan’s Red Cross Hospital, was widely shared on social media on Friday.
It shows a hospital corridor filled with people wearing surgical masks and health workers in full-body hazardous material suits handling intravenous drips and tending to patients.
“Three bodies have been lying here the whole morning,” the woman recording the video says, according to a translation by social media monitoring agency Storyful .
“Some people are already dead. Until now, nobody’s come to take care of them. Doctors and nurses are all here working in these conditions… I’ve just looked for the person in charge; there’s no leadership and even if there were, they wouldn’t be able to solve this.”
This is the moment a suspected conorvirus sufferer was wheeled out of an airport in a quarantine box.
The man was loaded into the see-through pod and isolated from other travelers to prevent transmission of the deadly and highly contagious virus.

The patient was shuttled out of the terminal in the contraption - known as a transportable isolator - while flanked by staff dawning face masks.
Hazmat-clad paramedics were then waiting to help load the box into the back of an ambulance.

We became the third shift of the fever clinic.
Don't we want to live?

Take away those on the floor!
(female doctor trying to calm him down)
I'm not throwing a tantrum!
What can I do with so many patients!
(female: let's call the head of the hospital over...)
Do you really think they want to come over?
(female: let's ask the patient to talk to--)
(patient: It doesn't work. I went but I couldn't find the head of the hospital.
(patient: I even called the 12345 major's hotline)
I don't need a doctor! I don't need a doctor!
I have a doctor, I can diagnose patients...(end of video)
VANCOUVER -- As soon as a 15-year-old Langley boy saw another teen point him out, he knew he was in danger.
“He saw me, he pulled the gun out,” said the victim of a violent attack that happened Tuesday at Willowbrook Shopping Centre. CTV News Vancouver has chosen not to name the boy out of concern for his safety and that of the friends he was with that afternoon.
Video of the incident shows the male suspect walking near the H&M store inside Willowbrook Mall wearing a large coat and jeans. He then pulls out what looks like a long gun and begins running toward the victim, pointing the weapon at him and then hitting him with it, before running away.

The virus has killed at least 25 people in China, several of whom did not have pre-existing conditions before they contracted the illness, with more than 830 infected.
A doctor at a Wuhan hospital tells BBC News of her alarm at the spread of the outbreak. We have chosen to protect the doctor's identity.
It's my first epidemic. The first time we heard about coronavirus was 31 December, when there were a few cases.
But in the last two weeks, there has been an alarming rate of spread. I am scared because this is a new virus and the figures are alarming.
The hospitals have been flooding with patients, there are thousands, I haven't seen so many before.

According to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Mason Trever Toney, a 28-year-old construction worker, was arrested the same day for allegedly killing William Knight, also 28. Police described Knight as “a proud and outspoken American and pro-Donald Trump.”
Deputies found Knight dead next to an excavator with a brand-new American flag draped over the side of his body. Witnesses said Toney was spotted carrying a backpack, where he is thought to have kept the flag until after the stabbing.
Knight gave Toney and ride to work on Monday before the two men, who were friends, got into an argument, possibly over their opposing political views, witnesses said. Toney is known to be outspoken about politics and has said the government is out to get him, they said.
Witnesses recalled hearing Knight yell for help and seeing Toney repeatedly stabbing him with a trowel. They tried to stop the attack and threw objects at Toney, but he jumped into a truck and drove away, calling them “terrorists,” according to the affidavit.
Fifteen people have been rescued from an ‘exorcism sect’ where they were reportedly beaten with bibles, choked and had burning sticks rammed in their mouths – and cops also discovered a mass grave in the raid.
The incident took place at the community of El Terron located in the village of Santa Catalina in the western Panamanian region of Ngabe-Bugle when 15 people were rescued from the ‘La Nueva Luz de Dios’ (‘The New Light of God)’ sect, according to the Panamanian Ministry of Public Security.

A 69-year-old man facing eviction is accused of fatally shooting two Honolulu police officers who were responding to the scene of a stabbing. The suspect then apparently set a raging fire that destroyed at least seven homes and damaged others in an affluent community on the slopes of Diamond Head.
In a news conference Sunday afternoon, a visibly shaken Police Chief Ballard identified those killed as: Officers Tiffany Enriquez, a seven-year veteran of the force; and Kaulike Kalama, a nine-year veteran of the force. As Ballard spoke to reporters, her voice shook with emotion as she fought back tears. “On behalf of the men and women of the Honolulu Police Department, we extend our deepest condolences,” she said. “I knew each one of them very personally.”
The rampage rocked a state unaccustomed to violence and left many in disbelief. “This is a family and people are grieving,” Mayor Kirk Caldwell told reporters.
Ballard identified the suspect as Jerry Hanel, and authorities believe he died when the home he was in went up in flames. His remains have not yet been located, but Ballard said processing the scene could take days.
Court documents show Hanel has a history of erratic behavior and making false 911 reports. His attorney said he had delusions that he was being tracked by the FBI. Ballard said he had no permits to own firearms. Meanwhile, two people ― both women ― remain unaccounted for in the wake of the day’s events. Their identities have not been released.
The video above shows the suspect, Jerry Hanel from a police body cam in May of 2019 and the second part of the video shows the fire Hanel set yesterday.
