Two intruders – one believed to be carrying a gun – stole an elderly man’s car keys and wallet during a home invasion in Queensland, police say.
An 87-year-old man had his car and wallet stolen when he was confronted by two intruders in his central Queensland home early on Tuesday, police say.
It’s believed one of the thieves was armed with a gun.
While the elderly man’s car was recovered, police are still hunting two men over the Bundaberg home invasion.
One man is aged in his early 20s and is Caucasian of proportionate build, 168-170cm tall with short brown hair and was wearing dark clothing at the time of the robbery.
Police describe the other man as a Caucasian of proportionate build, 180cm tall with black curly hair.
The robbery was one of two home invasions that targeted elderly Queenslanders overnight.
A 70-year-old man ended up in hospital after he tried to stop three intruders from leaving his home at Brassall, near Ipswich.
Police arrested three men a short time later and recovered the stolen property.
They will face robbery related charges at Ipswich Magistrates Court on Tuesday as their victim recovers from cuts to his arms and legs suffered in a struggle with the intruders.
