Break and enter and deprivation of liberty, West Rockhampton

Police are seeking public assistance to help identify two men and a woman after an elderly man’s home was broken into overnight in West Rockhampton.

An 86-year-old man was at a house on Boreham Street last night when two men and a woman broke into his house around 11.30pm.

They cut the man’s phone line and damaged his mobile phone and proceeded to drink alcohol from his house all night and threatened him with a knife.

The trio also used the knife to damage property in the man’s house and stole a number of items before leaving the house at some stage early this morning.
