A group of masked offenders are on the run after allegedly stabbing a man and striking a woman during a home invasion in Sydney’s west.
A man was stabbed and a woman was struck with a bat by a group of offenders during a violent home invasion in Sydney’s western suburbs.
NSW Police were called to a home on Railway St in Yennora about 2.50am on Wednesday with reports four home invaders dressed in masks and hooded jumpers forced their way into the residence while the occupants were asleep.
The group made their way to a bedroom in the house and demanded money from a 39-year-old man. He was stabbed in the chest, which caused a small wound.
Two other occupants, both women, aged 52 and 63, were woken and went to inspect the noise.
Police said the 52-year-old was then hit in the face by a bat as the 63-year-old quickly locked herself in a room.
She tried to call police but was stopped when the group kicked the door down and took her phone. She was not harmed.
Emergency services later arrived at the scene where paramedics treated the injured 39-year-old man and 52-year-old woman.
The man was taken to hospital in stable condition and has since been released.
The younger woman was also taken to hospital in stable condition where she was observed.
Police officers have established a crime scene at the Yennora home which is being forensically examined.
Detectives have commenced investigations into the incident.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
