Police seek help after home invasion
Police are appealing for public assistance following a home invasion at Umina.
It occurred at just after midnight on Wednesday, January 30, with three unknown men forcing entry into a unit on Trafalgar Ave.
Two of the men were allegedly armed with what is believed to be a baseball bat and a knife.
Once inside the unit they allegedly assaulted the occupant, a 44-year-old man, before fleeing the scene on foot.
They were last seen running into Gwedonlen Ave.
The occupant was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics before being taken to Gosford Hospital for treatment for a large laceration to his head, bruising and swelling to his elbow and shoulder.
He has since been released from hospital.
Officers from Brisbane Water Police District established a crime scene and have commenced investigations.
As inquiries continue, anyone with information is urged to come forward.
