Man bashed during violent home invasion
A 65-year-old man has been injured during a home invasion at Hampton.
Police say three male offenders broke in through the front door of the Lawson Street home just before 11pm on Sunday night.
The home owner, a 65-year-old man, confronted them.
He suffered head injuries in the altercation before the offenders fled.
The man was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The three intruders – described as tall and wearing hoodies – fled north on Smith Street.
In April this year, the property next door was targeted in a non-fatal drive-by shooting which was believed to be a case of mistaken identity.
