A gang has broken down a bedroom door and used it to attack a 66-year-old man in his home near Newcastle.

Police say the Elmore Vale man was asleep during the early hours of Saturday when he was woken by yelling and screaming.

When he went to investigate up to 12 people allegedly ran towards him, knocking down his bedroom door, which fell on him.

The group then jumped on the door and assaulted him further, giving him injuries to his eye, face and chest, before fleeing the scene.

The man is in a stable condition in hospital with police urging witness to come forward.
