An 86-year-old man has died and his wife remains in hospital after the pair were bashed in their home in Sydney’s northwest.

The attack occurred after midnight on Wednesday when two men forced entry to the couple’s Cherrybrook home, threatened the couple and assaulted them.

Both were taken to hospital with serious head injuries, but the man died later on Wednesday.

The 84-year-old woman is believed to be in a stable condition.

The men, who fled and are yet to be apprehended, concealed their faces.
