Police are continuing to investigate the death of a man who was found deceased at a property on Riccarton Road, Christchurch, on Wednesday 4 March.

A 58-year-old man was arrested and charged with murder a day later.

Police are now seeking the public’s assistance to locate a second man in relation to the incident.

“Two men are believed to have entered the victim’s apartment on Riccarton Road after 10pm,” says Detective Inspector Mike Ford.
