Police have launched an investigation following three break-ins and two assaults and an indecent assault at Kingscliff on Tuesday night (June 2).

In the first incident reported to police, a male intruder was disturbed at a home unit in Lorien Way, about 11.30pm.

The intruder fled the premises; no property was stolen, and there was no assault reported in relation to this incident.

About 12.30am Wednesday, police received a report about a male intruder at a home unit in Pearl Street, Kingscliff, who allegedly assaulted a 15-year-old boy.

In a third incident, about 2am, a male intruder was disturbed inside a house in Pearl Street, where the man allegedly indecently assaulted a 12-year-old girl.

Police from Tweed-Byron Local Area Command established a crime scene at each premises; these have been examined by specialist forensic investigators.

Officers also conducted extensive searches and canvasses of the areas, but have not located anyone matching the descriptions provided to police.

Police believe the three incidents are linked, and would like to speak with a man who may be able to assist with their inquiries.

It’s believed the man may be aged between 25 and 35, 180 to 185cm tall, with short dark hair and dark bushy eyebrows.

Meanwhile, police are reminding members of the public to stay vigilant with their home security, keeping doors and windows locked and secured. Police also encourage members of the community to call Triple Zero (000) if they see anyone acting suspiciously in their street, particularly at odd hours.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to these incidents to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au
