Appeal after aggravated home invasion, NSW

Police are investigating after a man was stabbed in the arm during a reported home invasion near Windsor this morning, which is believed to be a case of mistaken identity.

Officers from Hawkesbury Police Area Command were called to a home on Porpoise Crescent, Bligh Park, about 12.45am (Monday 16 May 2022), responding to reports several men had forced entry into the home.

On arrival, police located a 32-year-old man with a stab wound to his left upper arm.

He was treated at the scene before being taken to Westmead Hospital in a stable condition.

Police have been told five to six men forced entry into the home and threatened the male occupant before he was stabbed.

The men then drove from the scene in the family’s white Skoda, taking a few personal items from the home.

A woman and four children were home at the time of the incident; they were shaken but uninjured.

Initial inquiries have led police to believe the incident is a case of mistaken identity.
