Just before 10pm, approximately five males entered a residence on Ablington Way armed with what appeared to be batons and a firearm.

The men left the house after stealing personal belongings from the occupants. They were last seen running towards Amersham Street.
They were all dressed in dark clothing and had their faces covered.
A 47-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman were transported to the Princess Alexandra Hospital for treatment.

Burglary with violence, Marsden
Police are also seeking witnesses to a robbery in which five men entered a Marsden home and stole property overnight.
Around 8.45pm four women were home alone at the residence after three of their male friends left to go to a nearby store. Shortly after the men left, five men entered the Lynelle Street residence through an unlocked front door. One of men was armed with a “butcher” type knife and made demands for money and property.
The offenders searched the house and took a small amount of property before fleeing the scene. No one was injured during the incident.
Anyone with information which could assist police with their investigations should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au 24hrs a day.
