Knife used to threaten occupants during home invasion at Rockdale

Police are investigating a home invasion at Rockdale overnight.

“About 11pm on Monday, a man and two women entered a home on Fredrick Street via the front door,” a police spokesman said.

“The trio, one armed with a knife, entered a bedroom inside the premises and confronted a man and a woman, threatening them with the knife.

“The two occupants were forced to hand over the keys to their white Toyota Echo, registration WLM 423, which the trio left in.

“Police believe the two occupants and the three intruders are known to each other.

“A crime scene has been established at the Fredrick Street property and a full investigation is now underway by detectives from St George Police Area Command.”
