Mildura police Acting Inspector Rebecca Olsen said a Mildura woman returned to her Benetook Avenue house about 2.15pm with friends, when she was confronted by two men inside who produced a weapon and threatened her.

Insp Olsen said the woman called out to her friends for assistance, causing the alleged offenders to flee on foot.

“The victim is certainly alarmed and frightened by the experience,” Insp Olsen said.

She said after police investigations, it was found the incident was linked to a second burglary at a neighbouring property where property was stolen.

She said the two men were sighted at nearby Hector Street and last seen in the vicinity of Scott Crescent near the railway line and travelling on foot towards Ambleside Crescent.

Police are appealing for information to the thefts and have released a description of two men they wish to speak to.

Insp Olsen described the two males aged between 17 and 27, of Aboriginal descent, with one wearing a red top and the second man wearing a bluish/greyish hooded jumper.

Anyone with information is urged to phone Mildura Police Station on 5018 5300 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
