A man and a woman were sleeping inside their unit on Wharf Road in Gladesville in Sydney's north yesterday morning about 8.25am when they were woken by a man standing beside their bed.

The intruder, who had climbed through the bedroom window, grabbed a guitar found inside the room and hit the just-woken man in the head before fleeing the unit.

He remains in intensive care.

The 31-year-old woman also living in the unit was uninjured.

Police are looking to speak to a man described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged 30-35, with light brown hair and a long beard.

They have released footage of the man they wish to speak to.

Anybody with information is urged to contact Ryde Police on (02) 9808 7401.
