NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 19/12/2016

A Christchurch couple have been tied up in their home by a man who then used their car as a getaway vehicle.

The man described as Caucasian, 30-to-40-years old and 1.8m tall with a solid build gained entry to the couple's Harewood house on Monday morning by pretending to be a delivery man.

He tied the husband and wife up before leaving around three hours later, at 10.20am, in the couple's blue Toyota Vitz with registration number HFD599.

The couple then called their son, who called 111. They are shaken but uninjured, police said.

Police were unable to locate the man when they responded to the emergency call and have warned the public not to approach him because he is considered dangerous and possibly armed.
