Family Attacked With Machete In Terrifying Home Invasion

Three invaders have attacked a family in their home, ransacking the house and leaving a man with serious head and neck injuries.

The family, from the western NSW city of Broken Hill, was attacked by three men wielding a machete and wooden club who forced their way into their home.

Police say the intruders entered the Gypsum St property on Sunday night and assaulted a woman who was home alone with her young children.

"The trio proceeded to ransack the house until the male occupant of the home arrived," police said on Monday.

When the woman's 28-year-old partner returned home, he was hit across the head with the club and set upon by the three men.

The woman and her children escaped and alerted police.

The man was taken to Broken Hill Hospital with serious head and neck injuries. Police are now appealing for anyone with CCTV or dashcam footage, or any other information, to come forward.
