Lower Hutt: Another home invasion this time in Avalon.

leave a comment »

Early this morning saw the second home invasion in the Hutt Valley. Whilst not on the level of the Stokes Valley attack it is rather worrying that the nature of these attacks is increasing. Two things spring to mind economic hardship and drugs

Three people, including an elderly woman, were upset, but physically unharmed, after four men forced their way into their Lower Hutt home early today.

Lower Hutt police said the woman, in her nineties, and another adult couple were awoken by the four men forcing the front door of the Charleston Avenue, Avalon, home.

“The males made a hasty search before leaving with some property and the victims’ BMW motor vehicle,” said Detective Sergeant Mike Sears of Lower Hutt CIB.

“The victims are obviously very upset, but thankfully received no physical injuries.

“We are still investigating the motive for this crime.”

Police are trying to establish if there are any links between this and the Stokes Valley incident, and need help to locate the four young men.

Keep your eyes out for the stolen car, a blue BMW, registration ZX9069.

More indepth detail in this Herald report has emerged (Sunday) and Police now believe of the posssibility that a gang  of assilants is operating in the Hutt Valley.
