An elderly Naenae man has been brutally beaten in his home by four men leaving him with a fractured collar bone and stitches to the head.

Hutt Valley Police are investigating a serious assault that was reported in the early hours this morning, Detective Sergeant Christiaan Barnard said.

Barnard said four men went to the address and began smashing windows.

‘‘When the 70-year-old victim came out to confront the offenders, they set upon him, striking him about the body and head. 

''He suffered a fractured collar bone and required stitches to his head. They then left in a vehicle along Bush Street towards Treadwell Street.’’

Police are seeking sightings of the vehicle, described as a dark coloured four wheel drive, possibly a Nissan Terrano or Pathfinder.

The offenders have been described as Pacific Island males wearing dark clothing.
