Police are asking for the public's help to find vandals who graffiti bombed an Auckland train in broad daylight while passengers were inside. 

Auckland City District Police are seeking the public's help to identify the vandals who cause about $20,000 worth of damage on Saturday February 24. 

In a Facebook post, the police said: "These idiots caused approximately $20,000 worth of damage - at the expense of ratepayers - when they graffiti-bombed the train at Meadowbank station after pulling the emergency brake just before 7am, while commuters were inside the carriages." 

Police say there will be people out there who can identify members of the group from the CCTV footage.

Members of the public are encouraged to contact Sergeant Grant Harris at Glen Innes Police on (09) 524 1910 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
