Police were called to a violent home invasion at a Williams Landing home at approximately 1.30am this morning.
It is believed several people broke into the Ashwell Avenue home by forcing the back door open.
A 37 year old resident was attacked by one of the gang who was armed with a machete.
He suffered cuts to his arms prior to jumping from a window to the front yard of his property.
The man was taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in a stable condition with upper body injuries.
