Two men were seen trying to get into the van at the back of a Te Atatu Rd address early yesterday morning.

A fight erupted between the owner and one of the men, who lost consciousness and was taken to hospital in a critical condition.

The police completed their examination of the Te Atatu Road address yesterday.

Officers have spoken to the van owner and several other witnesses.

They are still looking for a second man who fled in a vehicle.

The police are urging him to come forward.
