Brazen Armed Attempted Break-In Shakes Richmond Family

Nov 18, 2023

A Richmond family of three faced a terrifying break-in attempt by a knife-wielding attacker in the early hours of this morning.

A resident of Lennox Street, Richmond, who wishes to remain anonymous, shared the chilling details with the Hawkesbury Post. Still rattled from the encounter, the woman recounted being awoken by an unusual noise around 2:44 am. Initially dismissing it as a late-night Amazon delivery, she soon realised something was wrong when the sound persisted.

“I heard the gate squeak, and I peeked out the plantation shutters and saw these two faces covered with Ninja masks,” she said. She woke her husband and 29-year-old son, and together they confronted the intruders. “They flew out and roared at them.”

The assailants fled, jumped the fence, only to return minutes later, this time armed. “They came back with knives and said, ‘Give me the keys, give me the keys.’ I locked myself in the bathroom, and by this stage, we’d rung 000,” she explained.

Attempting to gain entry by smashing a window, the attackers were only stopped by a new security door. The residents believes they were after high-end cars. The stolen car they used was later picked up in Cranebrook and traced back to a criminal group. One offender is currently in police custody.

Describing the assailants, the victim revealed they were captured on CCTV under a streetlight. “What I don’t like is they turn around and come back. That’s the bit that scares you, you know? After being chased away, these kids came back.”

She the police responded within 10 minutes of their call and are currently investigating the incident but wanted to warn the community to be alert.

“I want people in Richmond to know that these people are coming into their area,” she said. “Maybe it’s not the Amazon driver coming through the front gate.”
