A baby was injured after it was reportedly used as a shield by a woman fending off punches during a fight.
Police confirmed to Newshub the 18-month-old baby was injured during "an incident" at a Hamilton address on Sunday afternoon.
"The baby was taken to Waikato Hospital for assessment but has subsequently been discharged."
Stuff reports the baby was injured after the woman holding it backed away using it as a "shield" during the fight, which involved gang members.
A source told Stuff around 14 people were part of the fight - some of whom wore Mongrel Mob patches - and it began at the front of the property at around 2.30pm.
Police are continuing their investigation and ask anyone with further information to ring them on 105.
