Elderly man robbed in violent home invasion

POLICE are hunting three men after an elderly man was robbed during a terrifying home invasion on the Gold Coast. 

It’s alleged three intruders, two of whom were armed with knives, stormed the 71-year-old’s Newstead Street home at Burleigh Waters just before 2am on Friday.

The elderly resident was awoken by the trio who demanded money. He complied and handed over an undisclosed amount of cash.


The intruders then fled through a front security screen in which they’d busted open to get inside the house.

The 71-year-old occupant was treated at the scene for minor abrasions and bruising.

Investigations into the incident are continuing.
