An elderly couple aged in their 80s have been brutally bashed in a horrific home invasion that has left the man fighting for life.
Four men allegedly stormed the couple's home on Tallowood Crescent in Cherrybrook, demanding money and assaulting the couple before fleeing.
The wife, 84, managed to alert a neighbour who called triple-0. The couple's son and other family members arrived at the home shortly after.
The man, 86, was treated at the scene before being transferred to Westmead Hospital in a critical condition.
He was left unconscious by the attack while his wife suffered head injuries and a broken arm.
Police dogs were used to scour the area and a nearby laneway was investigated but the assailants were not found.
A crime scene has been established and police are continuing their investigations.
