Raiders had replica gun

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

TWO men armed with knives, scis­sors and a replica hand­gun have been charged over a home in­va­sion at Cabra­matta.

The pair al­legedly went to a home in Curtin St at 1pm on Fri­day and tried to force their way through the front door.

Af­ter fail­ing to gain en­try, they moved to the back of the house and con­fronted a 62year-old male res­i­dent and threat­ened him at gun­point. The man was not in­jured. Other res­i­dents con­tacted po­lice, who ar­rested the two men as they tried to flee.

A 26-year-old and 28-yearold were later charged with sev­eral of­fences, in­clud­ing ag­gra­vated break and en­ter with in­tent, armed with a weapon.
