Police are hoping to identify two men after an attempted home invasion in Broadford on Wednesday, June 24.
Mitchell Crime Investigation Unit detectives are investigating the incident where two unknown men arrived at the front door of a house on Piper Street at about 11.20pm.
Two male occupants answered the door and were asked if a friend lived at the address.
The occupants said no one with that name lived at the house and asked the offenders to leave.
One of the victims then opened the door and was confronted by one of the men, who was wearing a balaclava, black clothing, blue rubber gloves and carrying a metal pole.
A verbal altercation occurred but the offenders did not gain entry to the premises and fled the scene.
No one was injured.
Police have released CCTV and images of two men who they believe may be able to assist with their enquiries.
