They broke into the house in Moss Park at 4am on Sunday - armed with a handgun and a knife - and confronted a 32-year-old man in a bedroom.
The pair demanded money from the victim and struck him a number of times, injuring him on the face and arm.
A sum of cash was taken by the intruders before they made off.
