Home invaders assault two men

TWO men had their Kings cliff home invaded at 4.10am on Saturday morning.

A New South Wales police spokeswoman said two male intruders smashed through the door of the Kingscliff unit.

One of the intruders was armed with a metal bar but did not use it to assault the victims.

“A scuffle occurred between one of the offenders and the 30-year-old victim,” the spokeswoman said.

“The offender than left the unit as a result of the scuffle.”

The spokeswoman said the second victim, aged 37, was assaulted by the second intruder.

“The intruder demanded money from the 37-year-old victim, who handed over a small amount of cash and the offender left the unit,” the spokeswomen said.

Tweed Byron police were then called to the apartment and secured the scene.

The 37-year-old victim was taken to the Tweed Hospital and treated for minor injuries, the spokeswoman said.

“The man had bruising around his left eye as a result of being punched in the face.”

The 37-year-old man has since been released from hospital.

The other occupant received no injuries.

The intruders have been described as both around the age of 25, 180 cm tall and wearing dark clothes.

Tweed Byron police are investigating.
