NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 3/03/2017

An Aro Valley, Wellington, woman woke up to find a man in her bedroom, who fled after she fought him off.

Police have gone public about the home invasion at 6am last Sunday in the hope someone with information will come forward.

After a brief struggle the intruder fled on foot.

He is described as male, 25 to 30 years old, of muscular build and about 180cm tall.

"This was a traumatic experience for the young woman," says Detective Jocelyn Bell.

"Thankfully she was wasn't seriously injured, however this incident left her extremely shaken.

"Finding the person responsible will go a long way to providing her with some reassurance."

Police would like to hear from anyone who was in the Aro Valley area at that time and saw or heard any suspicious activity.
