Man, 67, charged over home invasion

A 67-year-old man has been charged following a home invasion in Sydney’s Upper North Shore.

Police say that at around 10.30pm on Wednesday, police were called to the home on Drumcliff Avenue, Killarney Heights, following reports of a home invasion.

“Police will allege two men forced entry to the home, before assaulting a 53-year-old male occupant,” NSW Police said in a statement.

“A second occupant, a 43-year-old woman, attempted to intervene and was also allegedly punched in the head.”

Neighbours were alerted and restrained a 57-year-old man at the scene until the arrival of officers from Northern Beaches Police Area Command.

Police attended and arrested the man, along with a 67-year-old man.

They were taken to Manly Police Station and charged with aggravated break and enter with intent – inflict actual bodily harm.

The 57-year-old man was refused bail to appear at Manly Local Court today. The 67-year-old man was granted conditional bail to appear at Manly Local Court on March 17.

Police believe the attack was targeted. Two children were at the home during the incident, but were unharmed.
