A man has been kicked and punched and a woman threatened with a spanner during a violent home invasion in Brisbane.
Police say three men approached the man at his Ferny Grove home about 4.30pm on Sunday, demanding money, before attacking him.
The victim managed to run inside and lock the door, but the trio kicked it in and threatened the woman with a spanner before she was able to flee outside.
Police found the three men still in the house when they arrived. They are facing charges including assault, extortion, stealing and wilful damage and will face court on Monday.
