A woman has been slashed with a knife and a man has been shot at during two separate violent home invasions overnight.
The first aggravated burglary occurred in Taylors Lakes, in Melbourne’s north-west, just before midnight on Sunday.
Three offenders stormed a family home on Robertsons Road, demanding car keys before firing a gun at two of the residents.
A 21-year-old man escaped with a minor injury to the upper body from the shooting and was taken to hospital in a stable condition. The rest of the family was uninjured.
