Lismore police are appealing for information after three people were injured following a home invasion last month at Richmond Hill.

They are asking anyone who may have seen a white Holden Commodore sedan bearing NSW plates TBA-699 travelling in the Lismore or Glen Innes area in the early hours of Sunday November 17 to contact Crime Stoppers.

At about 1am that day, police went to a house in Richmond Hill Road, where three occupants had been assaulted and a car stolen.

They found two men, aged 74 and 49, and a 55-year-old woman suffering severe facial and head injuries.

Police say two men entered the house, dragging the couple from one bedroom and the older male occupant from another room.

The intruders assaulted the two male occupants tying one of them with cable ties.

The men loaded up a Holden Commodore sedan that belonged to the occupants with items from the house before leaving in the stolen car.

The three injured people were taken to Lismore Hospital and treated.

It appears the two men also broke into a neighbouring business property stealing electrical items and radio equipment.

A crime scene was established and investigations are continuing.

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/.
