Public appeal after Point Cook home invasion

Detectives from the Eastern Divisional Crime Team are hoping to identify a male following a home invasion in Point Cook earlier this year.

It’s believed an unknown male attended a Annandale Mews residential address about 12.50pm on Tuesday, 12 January.

The male repeatedly knocked on the front door and rang the doorbell before walking away.

Shortly after, two other males allegedly forced entry through the front door.

The pair stole various personal items before all three males fled the scene in a Renault hatchback.

Later that day, police seized the vehicle and arrested two men in Glenroy who were allegedly in possession of weapons and stolen property.

The men, aged 21 from Roxburgh Park and 20 from Mill Park, were charged with home invasion (steal) offensive weapon, theft, commit indictable offence whilst on bail and other offences related to other alleged offending.

Both were remanded to appear before Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 17 August.

Following an extensive investigation, detectives have today released an image of a male who they believe can assist with their enquiries.

The male is believed to be aged in his late teens, between 170-180cm tall, thin build with dark-coloured hair.

He was wearing a blue Adidas hoodie with blue and white lines on the shoulder, black Nautica shorts, bright red runners and a blue surgical mask.

Anyone who recognises the male or has information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
