Ringmer residents were woken to the sound of screaming after windows were smashed at a property in Springett Avenue.
Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident, which took place at about 2.12am on November 3. The front door glass and a front window pane at the private property were broken, said officers.
Officers want to speak to anyone with information about the incident. In particular, they are keen to identify a red or maroon Renault hatchback car believed to have left the scene shortly afterwards, possibly with several men aboard.
Anyone able to assist is asked to contact Sussex Police online or by phoning 101, quoting serial 129 of 03/11.
Alternatively they can visit Crimestoppers or call the independent charity anonymously on 0800 555111.
