Police are appealing for public assistance following an alleged aggravated robbery in the state’s north west last year.

About 1.20pm on Friday 3 January 2020, officers attached to Central North Police District were called to a remote property in Byrock, about 110km south of Bourke, after reports of an aggravated robbery.

Police attended and located a 75-year-old man with serious injuries tied to a chair.

The man was treated at hospital for his injuries and has since recovered.

Police were told the man had been assaulted by three men, who stole a number of items before fleeing the location.

The men were described as being of Mediterranean / Middle Eastern appearance.

Detectives subsequently established Strike Force Kinilibah to investigate the incident.

As part of ongoing inquires, strike force investigators have released images of a Blue Toyota Aurion, which they believe the men travelled in and are appealing for public assistance to help identify and locate them.

Investigations under Strike Force Kinilibah are continuing.

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