Two people charged in relation to Pickett’s Valley Home invasion

Police are appealing for public assistance as they continue to investigate an alleged home invasion on the Central Coast where a man was seriously assaulted last year.

Police have been told about 3am on Wednesday, August 26, 2020, three males approached a home on Country View Close, Picketts Valley, and allegedly attempted to steal two motorbikes from a shipping container located on the property.

One of the residents – a 49-year-old man – was awoken by the noise and confronted the men before being assaulted by the group.

The three men fled the scene in a vehicle a short time later, as the 49-year-old grabbed the keys to his vehicle and attempted to follow the group.

The man received several facial injuries which later required sutures at Gosford Hospital.

Police attached to Brisbane Water Police District were notified and commenced an investigation into the incident.

Following extensive inquiries, two people – a 30-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman – have been charged in relation to the incident; they remain before the courts.

As police continue their investigation, they are urging anyone who may have information which could assist investigators to contact Gosford Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
