Greek Australian Kevin Kourtis, aged 39, was stabbed to death after five men allegedly stormed his home in Riverstone, Sydney, Australia at about 12.30am on Sunday.
Paramedics performed emergency treatment on the 39-year-old victim, but he died a short time later.
His female housemate, 34, was allegedly assaulted with the butt of a rifle and suffered minor injuries. Mr Kourtis’ girlfriend, 43, was also at home during the violent home invasion but was uninjured.
A 16-year-old and a 17-year-old who allegedly fled the scene by jumping over the property’s back fence were arrested a few streets away from the Langton Street home about 1.10am.
The pair have been charged with murder and refused bail. They will face children's court on Monday.
A manhunt is underway for the other three people allegedly involved in the attack.
