Police investigate reappearance of Kingy intruder

POLICE have renewed investigations into aggravated break-ins at Kingscliff after at least two children's bedrooms were broken into early yesterday morning. 

Tweed/Byron Local Area Command were called to Lorien Way, Kingscliff, to reports of an intruder inside a home, about 1.15am yesterday. 

Police patrolled the area and spoke to an Ibis Court resident who heard someone in their rear yard at 12.20am that morning.

The resident had found hand marks on her daughter's bedroom window after the incident. 

Another resident told police she awoke at 12.30am to find a man standing at the end of her bed, where she and her son, 10, both slept. 

The man ran from the home when the mother got out of bed.

The man was described as being Pacific Islander or Maori in appearance, aged in his 30s with a solid build, about 175cm tall and wearing a dark hoodie and long pants. 

Similar incidents involving a man of the same description took place in the Kingscliff region in June. 

Investigators have asked anyone who witnessed the incident or has information that may assist with inquiries to contact Kingscliff Police Station or Crime Stoppers.

While inquiries continue, police have urged residents to remain vigilant with their home security.
