Around 4am, on Sunday 13 January 2019, the victim was inside his house on Eudoria Street Gosnells, when he heard a knock at his front door. Believing it to be a housemate arriving home, he opened the door and was confronted by two men, one of whom were brandishing a knife.
The men demanded cash as they entered the house. They told the victim to sit down on a sofa, as one of the men entered the kitchen and removed two cans of soft drink. A car was heard pulling up in the driveway and the men ran from the house in possession of the cans of soft drink.
Police have released a composite image of a man who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.
The man with the knife is described as: Brown skinned, approximately 25 to 35 years of age, dark coloured eyes, long unkempt brown hair, medium build and approximately 175 cm tall. He was wearing a black long sleeved t-shirt and grey pants.
No description is available of the second man.
