Police are investigating a home invasion in Hastings, where the occupants of a house woke to find two men brandishing weapons, and demanding keys to their vehicle.

The incident happened at a property on Pakowhai Road, just before 3am on Tuesday.

The stolen vehicle was driven around Flaxmere and Havelock North for several hours, where it was used to knock over rubbish bins.

Detectives are calling for information from people in the area who may have seen a 2001 Range Rover or its occupants.
