Man charged over terrifying home invasion



A man has been charged after five men were reportedly threatened with a gun in a terrifying home invasion at Orange in Central West NSW.

Police say a group of five males were at a home on Moad Street when two men forced their way inside just after 3.40am on Boxing Day.


Investigators have been told one of the intruders struck a 17-year-old male in the head with a gun before both offenders fled with three mobile phones, a gaming console and two wallets.

Later that day, detectives raided a home on Anson Street where they arrested a man who required medial assessment.

During the search of the man’s home, police allegedly found two of the three mobile phones and a gaming console.

At around 11.40am this morning, a 20-year-old man attended Orange Police Station where he has since been arrested and charged with armed robbery and break enter steal for an unrelated matter.

He was refused bail to appear before Orange Local Court tomorrow.

Investigations are continuing.
