Friday, 26th October, 2018
Police are hunting for two men who forced their way into a Hebbard Street home armed with a baton and a knife about 10pm on Wednesday night.
Two occupants - a man and a woman - who were home at the time heard a noise and went to investigate.
“As the 30-year-old occupant walked out of his bedroom he was confronted by the two men and assaulted,” a police spokesperson said.
“He sustained injuries to his head and ribs.”
The woman, aged 21, was also assaulted and sustained a small laceration to her ankle.
Police said the men stole cash from a wallet and a set of keys to a black Mitsubishi Mirage that they then used to flee the scene.
Anyone with information is urged to contact local police or crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
