Police charge three over home invasion at Raymond Terrace

Three people have been charged over an alleged home invasion at a Raymond Terrace home early this morning.

About 3.40am (Saturday 12 June 2021), emergency services were called to a home on Gwen Parade Raymond Terrace, after reports four people had forced entry to the home.

Police will allege three men and a woman threw a concrete object into the window of the house and smashed the windows of a car parked in the driveway.

The group then allegedly forced entry to the house when they became involved in a physical altercation with the occupant, a 51-year-old man, before the group left the location.

The man and the other occupants of the house, three women, aged 50, 50 and 73, were not injured.

Officers from Port Stephens-Hunter Police District attended and established a crime scene.

Following inquiries, police arrested four people – two men aged 35, a 30-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman – at a home on Green Slopes Drive, Raymond Terrace a short time later.

They were taken to Raymond Terrace Police Station where one of men, aged 35, was treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics for a cut to his arm before being transferred to the John Hunter Hospital under police guard, where he remains in a stable condition.

The other three were all charged with aggravated enter dwelling with intent to inflict actual bodily harm, two counts of destroy or damage property, and common assault.

The older man was refused bail to appear at Newcastle Local Court tomorrow (Sunday 13 June 2021).

The younger man and woman were granted conditional bail to appear at Raymond Terrace Local Court on Monday 5 July 2021.

Inquiries continue.
