Police have arrested two Otaki men in relation to an early-morning home invasion in Levin.

The men, aged 39 and 41-years-old, appeared in Levin District Court today jointly charged with aggravated robbery, kidnapping, and aggravated injury.

A third Otaki man aged 38-years-old was also arrested and charged with unrelated drug offences.

Police had been hunting for an armed group of masked intruders who allegedly tied up an elderly Levin couple and their son, ransacked their home and stole their vehicle on November 28.

All three men were remanded in custody.

Police said they were "still investigating the matter" and were following strong lines of enquiry to identify the three outstanding offenders.

Anyone who has any information to contact the Levin Police Station on 06 366 0500 or alternatively Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
