Four men, who were black and had their faces covered, got into the house and assaulted the man before fleeting down a back alley.

"This violence must stop and if we're to do that we need the community to come forward and tell us who is dealing drugs on our streets, who is carrying weapons.

"If we know their names before we see attacks such as we've seen overnight then we can target those individuals and ensure they are brought to justice before they have the opportunity to hurt someone."
