Man bashed and tied up in Tweed home invasion

A man has been terrified in his own home, during an aggravated break-in in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Another man and a woman forced their way inside the Banora Point property around 3.30am, before threatening the male resident with a knife.

The 41-year-old was assaulted and tied up, but managed to escape and call authorities.


He was treated at the scene for facial injuries by paramedics, but declined hospital treatment.

Police officers searching the Firestone Drive house found a woman inside, who was arrested and taken to Tweed Heads Police Station.

She is currently being questioned by police. However, her alleged male accomplice remains on the run.

He is described as being about 35-years-old, of Caucasian appearance with black hair and was wearing a grey top and black-coloured jeans.

The man stole a silver-coloured Ford Kuga SUV (with NSW registration “04LIFE”) from the house.
