Home invasion not random attack, say police

9:13 pm on 24 June 2013

Police believe a home invasion at a property on the West Coast last week was not a random attack.

A property in Fox River was targeted by armed intruders on 19 June. The intruders disguised their appearance and detained the couple for some time.

Police have interviewed both victims and a crime scene examination has been completed.

Officers want to speak to anyone who travelled along State Highway 6 between Punakaiki and Charleston on the night of the attack.
