Home invasion victim bashed

A MAN has been left with multiple head injuries from a Coffs Harbour home invasion.

The 41-year-old was in a stable condition at Newcastle's John Hunter Hospital on Monday night, where he is being treated for a suspected skull fracture, bleeding on the brain and possible brain damage.

Forensic police pored over the crime scene at premises in Cook Dr on Monday afternoon where they taped off a Mitsubishi van that had smashed windows.

Emergency services were called to the residence about 11.20pm on Sunday.

Police have been told a 'number' of men not further described stormed the address as the 41-year-old slept in bed with his 27-year-old partner.

The men allegedly assaulted the 41-year-old with a weapon, which detectives have also not further described.

He was rushed to Coffs Harbour Health Campus and later transferred to John Hunter Hospital.

The 27-year-old tried to flee through a window but one of the men dragged her back inside, bruising her arm, according to investigators.

Police say the assailants also assaulted the man's 18-year-old son, who was subsequently treated for a cut to his head.
