Man charged over violent home invasion

A MAN has been charged after two men were threatened in a home at Bethania on Saturday morning.

Police say around 5.30am two men, one armed with a knife, the other with a pole, forced their way into the King Arthur Boulevard address and woke the two male occupants.

The two residents were forced into the same room where one man was assaulted before the intruders demanded money.


The intruders then allegedly bound the pair with rope before conducting a search of the home and taking property before leaving.

They managed to free themselves before raising the alarm around 7.30am.

The 28-year-old occupant received a non-life threatening head injury. The 33-year-old was not physically injured.

A 24-year-old Beenleigh man has been charged with enter dwelling with intent at night in company, and two counts each of armed robbery in company used personal violence and deprivation of liberty. He has also been charged with unrelated drug matters. He is expected to appear in the Beenleigh Magistrates Court on Monday.

Investigations are continuing.
