Rally against a waste incinerator for Casino

Residents Against the Richmond Valley Incinerator (RAVI) and community members have planned a rally for tomorrow to alert the community about the issues surrounding waste incinerators and the problems they bring.

Police are appealing for public help to identify three men involved in a home invasion in Tweed Heads West yesterday evening (Monday April 7) and the attacker of two men at Murwillumbah yesterday morning.

About 4.30am emergency services were called to a home on Quarry Road, where they discovered two men, aged 46 and 48, suffering serious head injuries and stab wounds.

Both men were treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics and taken to Tweed Heads Hospital.

They were later transferred to Gold Coast Hospital, where both remain in a critical condition in intensive care.

The younger man has undergone surgery for a serious stab wound through the eye.

At about 6.45pm three men, two of whom were armed, forced their way into a home in Tweed Heads West.

They shot at a 58-year-old man and threatened a 25-year-old man before fleeing the Wyuna Road home in a white Ford sedan.

No-one was injured during the second incident.

Officers attached to Tweed/Byron Local Area Command are asking for anyone who may know the identity of any of the assailants.

Owing to the critical condition of the victims in the Murwillumbah assault, no description of the attacker(s) is available.

All three men involved in the home invasion were wearing gloves and facemasks.

One is described as being about 168cm tall and was wearing a black hooded jacket and black track pants.

The second is described as being about 165cm tall and was wearing a hooded jumper and track pants.

The third man has only been described as wearing a hooded jumper.

Police are urging anyone with information about either incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://www1.police.nsw.gov.au/.
