Three teenagers arrested over terrifying Albion home invasion


Detectives have arrested three teenagers over a terrifying home invasion at Albion on Tuesday.

Resident Ed told Neil Mitchell on Tuesday he was asleep when he awoke to his wife and son screaming.

It is alleged three males used tools stolen from the family’s garage to storm into the home, threaten Ed’s sleeping wife and child, and steal their car keys and an iPad.

An 18-year-old Kings Park man, a 17-year-old Deer Park youth and a 16-year-old Deer Park youth were arrested at their homes this morning and are currently assisting police with their enquiries.

“I heard my young fella scream, I ran downstairs to see three men jumping out the window,” Ed said.

Ed also said his young son was “a bit shaken up” after the trio jumped on the bed and woke him up during the frightening ordeal.

In another disturbing incident, Ed alleged his neighbour was also targeted in a separate attack.

3AW is not suggesting the three arrested teens were involved in this incident.

“Just a couple of weeks ago, a house got broken into and a car stolen, the same guy who got robbed tonight,” he said.

“They were asleep, they woke up this morning and realised a whole lot of stuff got stolen, about 20 metres from my house.”
