Police allege two patched Bandidos gang members bashed down the door of a house on Curletts Rd, Sockburn, on Sunday night and assaulted a man.
Two brothers, Rawiri Takuira Kiri, 26, of Waltham, and Lee Teomaori Kiri, 30, of Aranui, have been charged over the alleged incident, which The Star understands was a dispute over a cellphone which was sold but did not work properly.
They appeared in the district court on Monday, facing joint charges of possessing a firearm and armed robbery with a baseball bat.
Police allege they stole $15 from the male victim, who was assaulted during the incident.
More charges are likely.
They were remanded in custody until December, when they are next due to appear in court.
The Star understands the male victim’s parents and two children were at home at the time of the attack.
