A knife-wielding man allegedly sneaking past a sleeping six-year-old girl hiding in a bedroom before threatening her parents with the gun, is still at liberty – while the police beg for help to track down the suspect.
Detectives claim that the unidentified male suspect entered a house on May 17 in Munster, a southwestern suburb of Perth, after having been accessed through an unlocked door around 8:30 PM.
CCTV material captures the man, wearing a cap and hood, from the outside of the building before entering the door.
Once inside, he crawls past a six-year-old girl and her friend who both fell asleep in the living room.
He then believed that he had been hiding in the parent's bedroom for about an hour while he waited for the adult occupants to go to sleep.
When the couple finally went to bed, the suspect would have threatened them with the knife and demanded the keys to their Toyota Corolla – while their 11-year-old son was watching.
The couple's daughter, awakened by the turmoil, hid in a locked bathroom.

& # 39; He went into the house, went (straight on) to the children with his sword outside and made sure they were asleep, & # 39 ;, the male adult resident of the house said. WA today.
& # 39; We have not seen him; we just heard him at our door and he said, & # 39; you better come here or someone will get hurt & # 39 ;. & # 39;
The couple submitted to the man's demands and gave him the keys to their vehicle.
The suspect then fled and was later seen at a gas station.
He was caught on CCTV and seemed calm when he paid for fuel.
But the Toyota Corolla was later burned out that same night around midnight in Port Kennedy.
Detectives have released an image of a man dressed in a black and gray hoodie that they think will be able to help with the investigation.
