Police are renewing their appeal for assistance following further aggravated break-ins at Kingscliff including one in which a woman woke up to see a man standing at the end of her bed.

About 1.15am Saturday (December 12), officers from Tweed/Byron Local Area Command responded to reports of an unknown person at a home in Lorien Way, Kingscliff.

Police patrolled the area and spoke to an occupant on Ibis Court, who heard someone in the rear yard at 12.20am that morning.

The resident had located hand marks on her daughter’s bedroom window following the incident.

Another Ibis Court resident informed officers that she woke up at 12.30am, and saw a man standing at the end of her bed, where she and her 10-year-old son slept.

She got up and the man ran from the home.

He was described as being Pacific Islander/ Maori in appearance, aged in his 30s, solid build, about 175cm tall and was wearing a dark hoodie and long pants.

Investigators are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident or has information that may assist with inquiries to contact Kingscliff Police Station or Crime Stoppers.

As inquiries continue into these and other previous aggravated break-ins in the area in June 2015, members of the public are advised to stay vigilant with their home security, keeping doors and windows locked and secured.

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