A 44-year-old Dunedin woman was arrested last night, after
allegedly hitting an intruder with an axe.
Dunedin police said the woman was visited at her Corstorphine
Rd home at 6pm by a 51-year-old man who believed his
television set had been stolen and was at the property.
''He was confronted by a woman with an axe, who shoved him in
the chest with the handle end,'' Senior Sergeant Steve Aitken
said last night.
She was charged with possessing an offensive weapon and the
man with unlawfully being on property.
They will appear in the Dunedin District Court next week.
