Police believe home invasions may be linked

Police are appealing for public assistance following two vicious home invasions in the Port Stephens and Lake Macquarie regions.

Police say that at around 4am on March 23, three men armed with a hammer and knife forced entry to a home at Lemon Tree Passage, and seriously assaulted a man.

“In the second incident, about 2pm on Thursday 25 March, two men allegedly forced entry to a home at Kahibah and seriously assaulted a man. The men were armed with a pole and bat,” NSW Police said in a statement today.

Detectives attached to Port Stephens-Hunter Police District are conducting investigations into links between both incidents.

“The same vehicle was reportedly used on both occasions, described as a blue Mazda6 sedan,” Police said.

Police are seeking to speak with three men who may be able to assist with their inquiries. They have all been described as aged in their 20s.

Detectives are appealing for anyone who may have information about the incidents, or has dashcam footage of the incidents, to contact Port Stephens-Hunter Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
