A 17-year-old male has been arrested and charged with assault in relation to a body found in Mt Wellington on Sunday.
The man will appear in Manukau District Court today and police say further charges are likely after a post mortem is completed today.
A man’s body was discovered on Hillside Rd about 11:30pm on Sunday after someone calling himself Hohepa rang police from a phone box on Panama Rd.
The victim has not yet been identified and police want to hear from anyone who knows someone who matches the man's description.
He is believed to be in his 20s or 30s, Maori or Polynesian, average height and build, and wearing blue jeans held up with white electrical cable and a green jumper.
Police are looking for a number of other people believed to be involved with the incident and are asking people to come forward.
Anyone who has information can call police on 09 259 1261 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
