Investigations are continuing following a break, enter and steal that occurred at an address in Werrington County on Saturday, February 2.
At about 9pm two men knocked on the door of the home, asking the homeowner if they could use their phone, claiming their car had broken down and their mobiles were dead.
The homeowner let them in and one asked if he could use the bathroom.
The other man then grabbed the homeowner’s nine-year-old son and held a pair of scissors to his throat, demanding wallets, cash and phones to be handed over.
The homeowner handed over his phone when he then grabbed the man and freed his son.
The other offender returned and made more demands.
The victim ran to his kitchen where he armed himself with a knife.
The two home invaders fled and were last seen running to Henry Lawson Avenue.
Police were called to the scene and a crime scene was processed.
Anyone with information or dashcam footage of two men in the area at this time is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
