Earlier yesterday, officers arrived at a location in Hoppers Crossing and detained a 23-year-old local man.

The man faces charges including aggravated home invasion, false imprisonment, common law assault, and theft.

He is scheduled to appear at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court later today.

These charges stem from a reported violent home burglary at a residence on Beckett Road, occurring just after 9pm on the aforementioned date.

During the incident, a 65-year-old woman and a 67-year-old man were reportedly assaulted, threatened with a knife, and restrained while their home was thoroughly searched, and items such as watches and jewellery were taken.

The investigation remains active as detectives suspect the involvement of several other individuals.

The police have released an image of a man they believe might help with the investigation.

Anyone with information that could aid the police is encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers at 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.
