Police from the state’s Western Region are appealing for information following a home invasion in South Tamworth yesterday.
About 2.25pm (Monday 10 August 2020), officers from Tamworth were called to a home on Vera Street after reports four men had forced their way inside.
On arrival officers spoke to a 40-year-old female occupant who told them the men, described only as being Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander in appearance, had forced their way into her home through the front door.
