A man has died and a woman has suffered head injuries in what police allege was a robbery gone wrong at Badgerys Creek this morning.

A woman called the police about 4am today to report she and her husband had been attacked by in their home at the intersection of Lawson Road and Elizabeth Drive.

A NSW police spokeswoman said the woman, who is aged 67, was taken to Liverpool Hospital suffering a fractured wrist and head injuries, which are not considered to be life threatening.

But her husband, who was aged 69, died at the scene.

The woman told police three men had smashed their way into their home before bashing them with weapons.

It has been reported that the trio were armed with baseball bats, but this has not been confirmed by the police spokeswoman.

When police and paramedics arrived at the scene they found the body of the man, who had suffered severe head injuries.

The woman was bleeding heavily when police arrived. 

Police said the couple had no obvious criminal links, and initial investigations suggested the offenders may have been attempting to rob the home.

The police spokeswoman said the woman was seriously injured, and detectives had not been able to speak to her to find out further details about what had occurred.

The spokeswoman said it also was unclear when the attack occurred, as it was possible the woman had been knocked unconscious in the attack.

Homicide squad detectives have set up an extensive crime scene and are examining the single-storey home.
