Police are appealing for public assistance following a home invasion at Richmond Hill, near Lismore, on the weekend.

Emergency services were called to a home on Richmond Hill Road about 1am on Sunday (November 17) following reports of a home invasion.

Officers arrived to find two men, aged 74 and 49, and a 55-year-old woman, had been injured when three masked men entered the house and assaulted the trio.

Investigators were told the men also took property from the house before stealing the younger man’s car, a white Holden Commodore sedan, bearing registration TBA-699.

The vehicle was last seen travelling west towards Lismore on Ballina Road, just after 1am.

All three people sustained serious head and facial injuries and were treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics, before being taken to Lismore Base Hospital.

The location was examined by specialist forensic officers and detectives and police are seeking the three men, who have been described as being about 183cm tall and of a solid build. They were last seen wearing camouflage clothing and black masks.

Anyone who may have witnessed any suspicious or unusual activity in the area at the time of incident, or has information that could assist detectives, is urged to come forward.

Police are urging anyone with information about this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://www.police.nsw.gov.au/.
