Record breaking day of COVID deaths as Hillsong sings and dances the night away

As New South Wales breaks another COVID record with 29 lives lost in a single day, NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet spoke to the media this morning with an update on the pandemic.

Police are investigating a home invasion at Tabulam near Casino early yesterday morning in which a man and a woman aged in their 60s were assaulted.

Around 2.50am (Wednesday), two men entered a home on Sugarbag Road, Tabulam, about 55km south west of Casino.

Police were told the men then assaulted the couple in the home, before leaving the premises in a four-door 4WD, described as a late model white Toyota Hilux or Nissan ute.

Nothing was taken from the home.

Emergency services were called and the injured pair was treated at the scene by ambulance paramedics. The man suffered a cut to his head and the woman received grazes to her arm.

Officers attached to Richmond Local Area Command are appealing for anyone with information or anyone who may have seen suspicious activity in the area at the time of the incident to contact Casino detectives on 02 6662 0099.
