Couple charged over home invasion

A man and a woman will appear in court tomorrow after they allegedly committed a home invasion at Woy Woy yesterday. 

About 8.30pm yesterday (Tuesday 27 December 2016), a man and a woman approached a unit on Railway Street, Woy Woy, and knocked on the door. 

When the 65-year-old resident opened the door, the man, who was armed with a broken bottle, and the woman allegedly forced open the door and assaulted the resident. 

A second resident intervened and the alleged offenders left the location. 

Emergency services were called to the location and the 65-year-old man was treated for lacerations and bruising before being taken to Gosford Hospital. 

Officers from Brisbane Water Local Area Command commenced investigations into the incident. 

They attended a nearby unit in Woy Woy, where they arrested a 47-year-old woman and a 48-year-old man. 

They were both taken to Gosford Police Station and charged with aggravated break and enter in company and malicious wounding. 

Both were refused bail and will appear in Wyong Local Court tomorrow (Thursday 29 December 2016).
