Victim of home invasion, 92, 'thrilled' to be reunited with her treasured possessions

The 92-year-old victim of a violent Northland home invasion last week has been reunited with her treasured possessions that were stolen during the incident.

Police say that during the Kawakawa home invasion last Wednesday two offenders allegedly stole jewellery, the elderly woman's wallet and a calling card given to her by her late husband, 75-years-ago.

All of the stolen items have now been returned to the victim who has made a full-recovery after the attack and is reportedly "thrilled" to be reunited with her property.

Police allege two women approached the elderly woman's Kawakawa property to ask her for fuel when they assaulted her last Wednesday.

A 40-year-old woman has been charged with aggravated burglary and wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

A 24-year-old woman has already been charged with aggravated burglary and wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

The two women have appeared in the Kaikohe District Court over the incident.
