A 33-year-old man has been injured after a violent home invasion took place at his Villawood granny flat overnight.
At around 11:30pm on Saturday evening, the man responded to a knock on the door of his granny flat on Koonoona Avenue.
When he answered the door, he was punched in the face, resulting in the man being knocked out.
Two men, wearing balaclavas then entered the home and threatened the female occupant with a firearm before stealing clothing and fleeing the scene.
The man had been live streaming on a social media platform at the time, and police were notified.
The man was transported to Liverpool hospital with a large laceration to his head and remained there in a stable condition.
