A Perth woman has suffered serious facial injuries during a home invasion in what appears to be a random attack.
The woman was lying in bed moments after her husband left for work when offenders broke into the home through a locked door in Halcyon Way, Atwell about 9am on Tuesday.
The woman in her 30s was assaulted by one of the offenders, resulting in serious injuries to her face.
“It appears to be a random attack on someone and that is one of the scariest things I think you can experience,” Detective Constable Alastair McDonald told reporters.
“An incident of this magnitude, breaking in and assaulting someone is incredibly severe, incredibly serious.”
The injured woman stumbled down the street for help.
She was taken to hospital for treatment and was traumatised by the ordeal, police said.
Personal items were taken during the invasion.
Detectives are continuing their appeal for information and have released a CCTV image of a man they believe can help their investigation.
“We‘re working day and night to find these people,” Constable McDonald said.
He is described as about 180cm tall and of medium build with dark hair and a moustache.
Anyone with any information relating to the incident or who has CCTV or dash-cam vision of the area between 8.30am and 9.30am is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report it online.
