The group of four are believed to be aged between 15 and 20 and were dressed in black as they allegedly forced their way into a home on Tumut St Dudley and attempted to steal a motorcycle about 4am.

“They were confronted by neighbours and following a struggle, fled in a vehicle, striking the man,” NSW Police said.

They took off in a turquoise-coloured Volkswagen T-Cross, and police are appealing for anyone who might be able to identify the vehicle or the occupants.

An investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
