Gun aimed in couple’s bedroom
A GANG of thugs are on the run following a violent crime spree in which a defenceless victim was threatened with a shotgun in his own bedroom.
Four men and a woman are wanted over the violent aggravated burglary that has been linked to a police car ram raid in Carrum Downs and several high-speed pursuits.
John Schefman and his wife Silvia, both 68, were sleep- ing when they woke to loud bangs outside their rural Bittern property about 3.30am yesterday.
Three masked thugs used an axe to break into a shed on the property and raided the boot of a black Holden Commodore.
When Mr Schefman told them to leave, one man shoved a long-arm shotgun through his bedroom window threatened to kill him.
“I saw the big barrel come through the window and he told me to f--- off or else he’d blow my head off,” he said.
“We backed away from the window and told them police were on their way.”
The terrified couple hid for safety as the thugs sped off in a stolen BMW. The same vehicle rammed two police cars in Carrum Downs on Friday. and
