Terrifying Maribyrnong home invasion: Police hunt gang of six

A man has been bashed in a violent home invasion at Maribyrnong this morning.

As many as six offenders broke into the Fabian Court home shortly before 4am.

A male resident aged in his 50s was bashed over the head with a golf club.

He suffered head injuries and was taken to hospital in a serious condition.

Police told 3AW a woman was also home but escaped injury.

The gang fled in a white Mercedes-Benz wagon, which was stolen from the property.

All suspects are of African appearance.

Sergeant Mark Anderson told Neil Mitchell it’s believed to be a random attack.

“It would appear it’s possibly random but we don’t know,” Sgt Anderson said.

“The male’s wife and his 8-year-old daughter were asleep, she appears to be quite traumatised.

“She says she saw three offenders.”
