Police have charged a Mullumbimby man in relation to an alleged home invasion last week. But two others have so far evaded them.

At 8.40pm on Sunday, February 11, three men allegedly armed with handguns, a rifle and a sword entered a house on Poplar Street, Mullumbimby, and threatened the occupants – a 60-year-old man, his two sons aged 22 and 13 – and two friends.

The incident was reported to police on Wednesday, February 14.

The following day, a home on Azalea Street, Mullumbimby was searched, and a number of items, including a replica pistol, were seized.

A 23-year-old man was charged with aggravated entry of a dwelling with intent, affray, breach of bail, and breaking and entering with intent.

He was refused bail to appear at Byron Bay Local Court last Friday (February 16).

Investigations are continuing the identity of the two other unknown men.
