Police are appealing for public assistance as they investigate a home invasion in Sydney’s north-west last year.

About 11.30pm on Thursday 30 December 2021, four men forced their way into a home on Lavender Avenue, Kellyville, and assaulted the residents, a 61-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman.

They suffered minor injuries.

A short time later, the four men ran from the home across Lavender Avenue and into Wrights Road.

Officers from The Hills Police Area Command attended and secured a crime scene, which was examined by specialist officers.

Detectives have since established Strike Force Bristlenose to investigate the incident.

As investigations continue, police have released CCTV of four men who may be able to assist with inquiries.

All are described as Mediterranean/Middle Eastern appearance and of thin builds. All are depicted in the footage wearing dark-coloured hoodies and long pants.

The incident was believed to be targeted.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Castle Hill Police or Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report information via NSW Police social media pages.
