A 62-year-old man has been subject to a violent confrontation after being threatened by a group of armed men during a home invasion at Singleton.

The 4 masked males were wielding baseball bats when they forced their way into the Buchan Avenue home at around 9:30 last night.

Police say the man was forced to surrender both his wallet and phone but was unharmed.

The perpetrators are described as being aged between 15 and 20 and were last seen running through Apex Park.
