Police have released “facefit” images in an attempt to identify offenders.
The attack, involving three male offenders, occurred around 9.50pm on March 14. The three males, who were wearing balaclavas kicked down the door to the apartment and threatened the two occupants – a man and a women.

During a brief scuffle the male occupant suffered head injuries and the woman also suffered minor injuries.

A small amount of cash was taken and the male occupant was transported to hospital.
