A woman has been raped during a vicious home invasion in Waikato.
Police say four men appeared at the woman's front door in Kihikihi earlier this week and threatened her life and that of her young daughter.
The men were looking for another woman who was not in the house.
Waikato Police say the 26-year-old woman was raped in the bedroom of her home by a man wearing a Mongrel Mob vest.
They describe that man as a large built, light-skinned Maori with a bulldog tattoo behind one ear and one on his neck.
