Auburn, Sydney: attempted home invasion

Jan 21, 2008, ABC News:

Two men tried to break into a house while the occupants were home in south-west Sydney last night.

Investigators say a 58-year-old man was at his home at Auburn with four other people when he heard a noise outside about 9:10pm (AEDT).

The man went to the front door to investigate and saw a man, armed with a screwdriver, trying to break in.

A second man, armed with a gun, approached the door and ordered him to open it.

The man slammed the door and called police.

The two men are described as being tall and skinny and looking Mediterranean or Middle Eastern.

The first man was wearing dark clothes and a beanie.

Anyone with information is urged to contact police on (02) 9646 8699 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
