Creepy home invader cuts power, hides with gun waiting for victim

A WOMAN has been left traumatised following a horrifying and violent home invasion in Guildford this morning.

Just after 4am today, a 62-year-old woman woke to discover the power to her Bligh Street home was out.

When the woman went outside to check the meter, she saw a man wearing all-black clothing, sitting in her laundry, holding a stun gun and what appeared to be a pistol.


The woman screamed and ran back inside the house and the man chased her and stunned her several times with the stun gun.

The woman’s 71-year-old husband was woken by her desperate screams and came to her aid.

The woman was able to break free and went into the house and woke her 30-year-old son who was sleeping.

All three residents fought with the man in the backyard before he escaped by jumping a side fence.

He was last seen running south along Bligh Street before getting into a green-coloured early model hatchback, which was last seen driving south towards Rawson Street.

Police patrolled the area for the man and the car but were unable to locate them.

Several items of interest, including a replica pistol were located and secured at the scene for forensic examination.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Granville Police Station on 9897 4199 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
