Police remove items from a Hutcheson St address following an AOS callout in the Blenheim suburb of Mayfield on April 8.

Police are still searching for two men involved in an aggravated burglary which resulted in a callout to the armed offenders squad.

Marlborough police charged a 45-year-old man with aggravated burglary last week, following an incident on Hutcheson Street, Mayfield, earlier in the month where a man was threatened and assaulted.

Two other men, described by police as Maori and about 20 years old, were still wanted in connection to the burglary.

Detective Senior Sergeant Ciaran Sloan said both men were involved to a lesser extent in the burglary.

"It would be to their advantage to contact police and assist with the enquiries that are underway," he said.
