Police have resumed searching for three armed attackers after intruders broke into a Manurewa house early on Saturday morning.
The attackers bashed and tied up the occupants of the house.
The attack was particularly viscious. Two of the victims are recovering in hospital after undergoing reconstructive surgery. Another victim has been released.
Police began a manhunt for the attackers on Saturday but gained few clues as to who they are.
Police are appealing to neighbours to keep an eye out for a weapon which may have been used in the attack.
If anyone has information about the attackers or attackers, contact your local police station immediately.
