Home Invasion Cranbrook St, Christchurch

NZ Police CommCens Alert 22:00 21-05-2006 Canterbury

Location of incident: Cranbrook St, Christchurch

Incident Type: Home Invasion

At about 12.15 midday on Saturday 20 May 2006 the occupants of a Cranbrook St address in the Burnside suburb of Christchurch were asleep as they are night shift workers.

They were awoken by a loud noise and when the male occupant went to investigate he was confronted by two males in the passage way of his house. A struggle ensued resulting in the male victim receiving a hit to his head by a baseball bat which belonged to the occupants at the address. The intruders then left the address.

One of the offenders was described as being a male maori in his teens. Neither of offenders had their faces covered.

The male occupant was treated at Christchurch hospital and received stitches to a head wound. He also received bruising to his shoulder. He has since been discharged from hospital. The other occupant, a female was not involved in the confrontation and did not receive any injuries. Both victims were very upset about what had happened.

The motive for this attack is still being investigated. The weapon used in the attack has been recovered at the address and no property appears to have been stolen from the address.

Police would like to hear from anyone who may have any information about this attack.
