Police arrest four after quick reponse to Point Cook home invasion

Three men and a woman have been arrested following an alleged home invasion this morning at Point Cook.

When police arrived all four offenders ran out the back door.

Due to the quick response of police the male and female occupants of the house were not injured and nothing was stolen during the burglary.

Police arrested a 25-year-old Sunshine man, a 32-year-old Altona Meadows man, a 24-year-old Werribee woman and a Truganina man aged 25 years.

Wyndham Crime Investigation Unit detectives have charged the four with home invasion, theft of motor car and weapon offences.

The three men have also been charged with possess drug of dependence.

They are all expected to be remanded in custody to appear at court at a later date.
