Police are appealing for public assistance after a home invasion and assault at Bateau Bay in the early hours of yesterday morning.
Shortly after 2.30am, three men forced their way into a home on Banks Close, armed with a machete and with their faces concealed.
They threatened a 32-year-old woman and 29-year-old man, forcing them to the ground, before fleeing with mobile phones, cash and jewellery.
A short time later, a 17-year-old man was assaulted with a baseball bat while walking nearby at Woodside Court.
Police believe the incidents are related.
The men are all described as Mediterranean in appearance and around 180 centimetres tall.
