Southland detectives are hoping Police Ten 7 viewers will help them in their investigation of a Mataura home invasion in which an elderly man was stabbed.
The man spent several days in hospital after an unknown male entered the victim’s home in Main St, Mataura on June 17.
He demanded money before stabbing the victim and leaving.
Det Sgt Greg Baird, of Invercargill, said it was an unprovoked and violent assault, and viewers could help police with its investigations.
Police Ten 7 will air Thursday on TV2 at 7.30pm.
