Last night we had an intruder in our home.

Joanne from Orakei

We were in bed at 10pm. I heard movement and saw a torch light about 10.30. I woke my partner who yelled out. The person left.
We think he came in and out the back door or he climbed a ladder that was placed outside the bedroom window.
He had been through drawers in the spare room.
Luckily nothing was stolen
The police and dog came but they didn’t catch him.
We live In Rukutai Street.
In this hot weather remember to close and lock windows and doors before u go to bed.
We may Hve left the door unlocked.
It’s a horrible feeling knowing someone is in yr house while u are sleeping.

Look our for others

The Team from Auckland City District Police

We know some of you are facing threatening and potentially harmful times at home right now. Police will be there for you if you call us.

If you are in immediate danger and can’t call 111, leave your house and get out of harm’s way. Get to a safe distance and then ask a neighbour over a fence, or a passer-by, to call 111 for you. Your safety comes first.

It’s everybody’s responsibility to speak out and keep each other safe right now. If you think something is not ok with a friend, neighbour, or colleague, it’s okay to call Police on their behalf. The person you’re worried about may not be able to speak up for themselves. You could be saving a life.

Tell us about the coronavirus lockdown champions in your community

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

We want to celebrate the unsung heroes who are keeping our country going through lockdown.

Frontline nurse Debra Larsen's life has turned into a "real whirlwind" since the coronavirus outbreak began.

She's been so busy setting up testing centres around the Waikato. and helping them run smoothly that she's barely seen her two teenage daughters.

Do you know a coronavirus lockdown champion who deserves to be recognised? Tell us about them in the comments below.
