Waikanae victims house

Like many we were shocked by the home invasion incident last December when an 18-year-old, Hohepa Wallace, viciously attacked a couple in their 80s in their home in Waikanae one night in December last.  Details including a video are on this TV One webpage

While the full details aren’t given, including why the offender picked on this couple, it’s clear that security in the town needs to be increased to deal with this.  Even for those acting under the influence of methamphetamine, the likelihood of their being caught should act to deter their criminal inclinations.
