TWO Mornington residents were awoken by a man possibly armed with a gun last week.
Detective Senior Sergeant Eddie Lagonder, of Somerville CIU, said the unknown man broke into the Grange Road home, 4.50am, Thursday 16 September.
After confronting the married couple, he allegedly assaulted the 74-year-old man who was later taken to Frankston Hospital with minor injuries.
Detectives were still determining what was stolen, Thursday morning.
The offender is described as being short and stocky.
Anyone with information about either of these incidents is urged to call Somerville CIU 5978 1300 or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
