A Rockingham man was sprayed in the eyes and threatened with a knife by three home invaders last night.
A police spokesman said the man was at his Boon Court home around at 10.08pm when the trio "forced entry to a house and sprayed an unknown substance in the eyes of the home owner, causing irritation".
They threatened him with a knife while demanding money.
The "victim managed to run from the house calling for help and offenders ran off down a nearby laneway," police said.The alleged burglars are described as white male, slim, wearing masks, in their mid twenties.
