Lake Illawarra Police are on the hunt for two men who are allegedly responsible for a violent home invasion, which left two people in hospital.
In the early hours of Sunday morning, police were called to a home on Horsley Drive, Horsley, following reports of a break-in.
Around midnight a 38-year-old resident, was confronted by two unknown men inside his house before there was a physical altercation and he suffered a stab wound to his chest.
During the incident, a second resident, a 35-year-old woman, was woken and punched in the face by one of the men before they both fled from the scene.
The male victim was treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics before being airlifted to St George Hospital in a serious condition.
As part of ongoing inquiries, police would like to speak to two men they believe can assist with their inquiries.
Both men are described as being of Caucasian appearance, between 180cm and 185cm tall and of large build.
One of the men is described as having dark hair and a sleave tattoo. He was seen wearing a black shirt and a black cap.
The second man was wearing a grey hooded jumper.
Inquiries are continuing.
