Invader in wrong house
A MAN went to a house in North Rockhampton and threatened two people with an iron bar before returning a few minutes later to apologise and say he had the wrong address, police said yesterday. Two brothers, aged 17 and 22, were in the house in Richardson Road, North Rockhampton, about 6pm on Thursday when the man came in through an unlocked back door, said Inspector Graham Coleman, of Rockhampton police.
The man burst in on one of the brothers who was asleep, yelling and threatening him with an iron bar, before the second brother came into the room and the three went into the front yard. The man yelled and threatened them before leaving for a house two doors away. "He was apparently looking for someone else,'' Inspector Coleman said. "A short time later, he returned, saying 'Sorry, I got the wrong house'.'' Police say they know who the man is but have not yet been able to find him. "He's obviously trying to settle a score with someone but he's gone to the wrong house,'' Inspector Coleman said. He said the two men in the house reported the intruder had been drinking.
