Police say the occupant was asleep on a couch in the lounge room of his Jerry Bailey Road home when he was awoken by two men armed with weapons about 4.30am.

The pair allegedly threatened the 52-year-old, before assaulting him and fleeing.


The 52-year-old man was treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken to Shoalhaven Hospital with minor injuries.

Initial investigations suggest the incident was targeted.
