Their faces were covered and they were carrying knives and a gun. The intruders stabbed a 34-year-old man in the arm and hit him in the forehead, but did not harm a woman and child who were also home.

They left in a silver sedan.

The injured man is recovering in hospital, and police say initial investigations point to a targeted attack.
