A young woman has suffered shocking injuries after being brutally beaten when an intruder broke into her home.

CCTV has been released by detectives of a man they believe can assist in their investigation. He is described as 187 cm tall and of medium build, with olive skin, dark hair and a mustache.
Several items were stolen in the burglary and the woman was left with cuts, bruises and multiple fractures to the face.

Detective first-class officer Alastair McDonald said the woman was understandably traumatized after the unprovoked attack in her own home.
He said it is “extremely essential” that the person responsible for the attack is found.
“An incident of this magnitude – breaking in and assaulting someone – is unbelievably serious, unbelievably serious. We are working day and night to locate this person or other people involved.’
The woman was treated in hospital and has since been released.
“She is traumatized by the ordeal, but is recovering well. She is trying her best.’
Fremantle police do not believe the intruder and the woman knew each other and are asking for the public’s help.
Anyone with information is requested to contact Crime Stoppers at 1800 333 000.
