Two women aged 34 and 42 were also in the home at the time.

The younger woman suffered minor injuries and was treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics at the scene. The older woman was uninjured.

Following a search of the surrounding area, two boys – aged 16 and 17 – were arrested and charged on Sunday 24 May 2020. They remain before the courts.
