UPDATE: "The attack was clearly viciously planned"

UPDATE: POLICE are hunting for more clues about the people behind a violent home invasion in Urraween.

The 59-year-old male victim, who was bashed with metal bars on Friday, described one of his attackers to have a New Zealand accent and a tribal-style tattoo on his forearm.

Police arrested two men in Gympie on Saturday believed to be linked to the crime.

A 34-year-old man and a 21-year-old man, both from Logan, were released after questioning without being charged.

Maryborough CIB Detective Sergeant Mick Polit said more information was needed before charges could be made.

"We believe at least three (or) four male offenders were involved," Det Sgt Polit said.

"The attack was clearly viciously planned and targetted." 

The group of men were armed and wearing balaclavas when they entered the victim's home.

After the attack, they stole an SS Commodore sedan and a Harley Davidson motorcycle.

The motorcycle was found later in Urraween, and the car in Gympie.

If you have any information call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
