It is alleged that six masked men armed with bush knives and axes entered a house and stole property and cash valued at more than $US6000 while the family locked themselves in one of the rooms.

Security officers, who lived downstairs, tried to stop the men, who they threw stones and empty bottles.

One of the officers sustained a head injury.

Police are appealing to the public in the Panatina Ridge area for information.
