Three teenagers allegedly committed a violent home invasion in Katanning which resulted in a 63-year-old mother being knocked unconscious with a wooden object. Police allege that the three males — aged 18, 18, and 16 — broke into a home on Blantyre Street about 4.30pm on Wednesday, February 3. It is alleged the trio confronted a 21-year-old man inside the home over a civil dispute, then assaulted him. The mother of the 21-year-old tried to get the teenagers out of the home, when she was repeatedly hit with a wooden object and knocked unconscious, police say. The woman was taken to Albany Health Campus for treatment. She was discharged the following morning without serious injuries. Police allege the three teenagers fled from the scene on Wednesday, but were apprehended and charged the next day. The two 18-year-olds — Will George and Poe Kwa Hsit — were due to face Katanning Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday. They have been charged with one count each of aggravated burglary, aggravated common assault and common assault. The maximum penalty for aggravated home burglary is 20 years’ imprisonment. The 16-year-old will be dealt with through the Children’s Court. Katanning Senior Sgt Carlos Correia said it was lucky the injuries to the 21-year-old and his mother were not more serious. “This is callous behaviour by individuals,” Sen. Sgt Correia said.
