Businessman, wife injured during home invasion

A home invasion in Rio Claro has left a businessman and his wife nursing injuries.

Loop News was told the incident took place around 3am this morning at a home along Tabaquite Road.

Police were told the businessman was asleep at his home with his wife and daughters, when four men forced their way inside.

The men were armed, police were told.

They then tied up the family and assaulted them as they demanded cash.

However, the family indicated they did not keep money or jewellery at home, and as a result, the adults were assaulted.

The suspects were able to seize three registered weapons that the businessman kept, along with a quantity of cash, electronics, and even alcohol.

The scene was visited by a team of officers led by ASP Jankie and Sgt Richardson.

More on this as it becomes available.
