Woman hits intruder with axe

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.
