INVESTIGATIONS AFTER MAITLAND AGGRAVATED BREAK AND ENTER

Police are appealing for information after an aggravated break and enter in Maitland overnight.

Around 3.30am, five people forced entry into a home on Rockleigh Street, Thornton, waking the occupants.

The group – four men and one woman – locked themselves in a room before ransacking it.

When confronted by the occupants, a man and woman fled the scene with stolen property.

A male occupant confronted the men still in the room, when he was struck to the head with a crow bar.

Following a struggle, the rest of the group fled.

A 19-year-old man was treated for facial injuries and taken to Maitland Hospital in a stable condition.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
