The dramatic moment balaclava-clad assailants storm through a home and threaten its occupants with a gun has been inadvertently live-streamed online.
The 33-year-old had been live-streaming on social media platform TikTok moments before the altercation, with the aftermath witnessed by several virtual bystanders.
In video of the dramatic home invasion, a woman can be heard pleading with the two men to leave her alone as they repeatedly ask her where the safe is.
One of the men appears on the TikTok livestream holding a pile of what appears to be designer clothes which he removes from the room (pictured)
‘Where’s the money? Where’s the money?,’ one shouts at the woman.
A confused man still taking part in the live-stream looks increasingly concerned as audio of the home invasion continues.
‘What the f*** is going on,’ he says as the woman starts to call for ‘Wally’.
One of the men then appears on the livestream holding a pile of what appears to be designer clothes which he is seen removing from the room.
Police said emergency services were called to the home just before midnight following reports of a home invasion.
They said an occupant answered a knock at the door of the granny flat and was punched in the face and knocked to the ground unconscious.
‘The injured man had been live streaming on a social media platform at the time and police were notified,’ police said in a statement.

Two men wearing balaclavas then entered the home and threatened a female occupant with a firearm before taking clothing and fleeing.
Police said a 33-year-old man was treated for a laceration to his head at the home and later transported to Liverpool Hospital in a stable condition.
A crime scene has been established at the Villawood home with forensics scouring the scene for clues.
Authorities have asked that anyone with information contact Crime Stoppers.
