I lived in Auckland for nearly 2 years, I saw more physical violence than I have seen in the US or anywhere else I had been.
Most scenarios involved groups of Maori/Samoan thugs, wearing the same gangs colors. Much like the African/American scene in the US, but the Maori/Samoan thugs look much larger.
South Auckland was the poorer of all areas in the Auckland region, most crime reported and unreported happens there, most crime is not alchohol related.
I saw many incidents on and around K'Road including men assaulting women, transexual hookers punching/kicking each other in front of groups of people who thought it was funny rather than being in shock like myself .., but most incidents happen after midnight.
You will see many youth gangs and also some older gang members.
Older gang members with tattoos on their face some women also, many are in smaller towns also such as Hastings, Wairoa, Napier, Gisborne etc.
You will know them by their appearance.
I was going out every weekend for the first few months so I may have seen more than the average tourist.
Best advice I was given is to look the other way and go elsewhere and they should ignore you
