Police were called to the home on Douglas Road, near Daly Street, in the early hours of Friday morning.

Three men of Aboriginal appearance had forced their way inside the home and one threatened those inside with the weapon.

They had donned bandannas and gloves in an apparent bid to conceal their identities.

Property and cash were taken from the home and the trio fled in a blue 2012 Ford Falcon owned by one of the occupants.

Those at the home appeared shaken after the incident, but were uninjured.

Crime scene officers and detectives attended the home.

The property, which has a video camera at the front door, was dusted for fingerprints.

A nearby resident, who asked not to be named, said the house was usually quiet.

He spoke to police but didn’t hear anything unusual.

“They woke me up about 7.15am,” he said.

“They didn’t say too much, they just asked if we’d seen or heard anything.

“The cops just said there was a break-in and that was it.”

The neighbour said he had heard the stolen car start up and drive away.

“It was a loud car,” the man said.

“It’s usually pretty quiet here –you hear people going down the road flogging their cars, but that’s it.”

Police are trying to track down those involved in the home invasion.

The first man is aged about 25 to 30, overweight with a large stomach, 175 centimetres tall with short hair and facial stubble.

He was wearing a grey hoodie, dark pants and gloves.

The second man was about the same height, aged 20 to 25 years old, of thin build, and was wearing a grey hoodie with a black and white bandanna covering his face.

The third man was short, aged 20 to 25, with black shorts and Adidas shoes.

Anyone with information should call (02) 6023 9299 or 1800 333 000.
