Kawakawa Home Invader Identikit Picture Released

Police have released an identikit picture of a man alleged to have robbed and beaten a Kawakawa doctor.

On Tuesday night (May 6) the woman was confronted at her residence near the hospital by an offender who beat and then robbed her of a small amount of money.

At one point the offender has had a gold or tan coloured dog with him on a lead.

Police are also asking anyone living in the area who have had their property interfered with, lost property, or witnessed suspicious behaviour to contact the Kawakawa Police on (09) 404 3150.
