Brimbank police are asking for assistance as they investigate an aggravated burglary in Sunshine West last week.
It is believed two males forced their way into an Arnold Street property about 9.40am on July 25, ransacking the house before leaving in what appears to be a black VW Golf or similar.
The males returned the following morning and stole a Suzuki Swift which has since been recovered.
Investigators have released images of the two males and the black vehicle in the hope that someone may recognise them.
Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
