A teenage girl has appeared in court over an aggravated robbery which has left an elderly Hastings man in hospital.

Chanel Te Ana Allen has been charged in the Hastings District Court with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

She handed herself into police on Saturday.

Police allege the 17-year-old broke into the 77-year-old's home, assaulted him and stole his vehicle on June 25.


Allen has been remanded in custody to reappear next month.

Meanwhile, the victim remained in Hawke's Bay Hospital in a stable condition.
