The Northern Advocate - - Local News -

A 24-year-old woman has been ar­rested fol­low­ing a vi­o­lent home in­va­sion which left a 92-year-old Kawakawa widow in hospi­tal. De­tec­tive Se­nior Sergeant Rhys John­ston said po­lice had a pleas­ing re­sponse from the pub­lic. The ar­rested woman was to appear in the Kaikohe District Court to­day on charges of ag­gra­vated bur­glary and wound­ing with in­tent to cause griev­ous bod­ily harm. She also faces six ad­di­tional bur­glary charges in re­la­tion to other in­ci­dents. Po­lice have strong lines of in­quiry on the sec­ond fe­male in­volved in the Jan­uary 9 home in­va­sion. The “ex­tremely shaken” vic­tim was dis­charged from hospi­tal on Jan­uary 10 and is be­ing looked af­ter by fam­ily mem­bers.
