A Levin woman suffered a terrifying ordeal when two men broke into her home and tied her up at knife-point during an aggravated robbery in the early hours of Monday morning.
The woman was asleep in her Trafalgar Street home and was woken by the intruders at 3.45am.
After tying her up, they demanded property before leaving in her car.
The vehicle has since been recovered by police and a forensic examination conducted, as well as a scene examination at the address.
The woman, who police said was "very shaken" by the incident, was unable to get a close look at the intruders.
Victim Support services were being provided.
Police are interested in hearing from anyone who may have seen the recovered vehicle, a grey Nissan Murano registration GSU174, in the Levin area on the morning of Monday March 20.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Detective Richard Morse or Acting Detective Sergeant Dave Wilson at Levin Police on 06 366 0500 immediately.
