A man was hit by an iron bar during an aggravated burglary which occurred at a Point Cook house on Tuesday.
Police said that two intruders kicked in the front door of a Luxford Drive home around 2am.
A family of three, who were asleep at the time, woke up and went to investigate the noise.
Police said the two intruders were disguised with their faces covered, with one of the offenders carrying an item described as an “iron bar”.
A male resident of the house confronted the offenders, who made demands for property.
Police said there was an altercation, which resulted in the male resident being hit with the iron bar.
Police said the man sustained injuries to his torso and arms, but did not require hospitalisation.
The offenders fled the scene afterwards. Anyone with information, or who witnessed suspicious behaviour in the area, can contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
