A Greymouth woman was startled awake early on Saturday morning by the sound of a window smashing and chainsaw starting up, to find a trio of men in hoodies cutting her balcony.

Police said the Wickes Street resident did not recognise any of the men, but described them as European, and said one was tall and skinny, wearing a white hoodie.

They had gone by the time police arrived, but police say they have identified several suspects.
