A kangaroo left a couple hella shocked after it smashed through a window of their house and leapt straight onto their bed as they were sleeping.

The unusual home invasion happened to Bill and Norma McConnell from Torquay, Australia, on Sunday morning.

"Firstly, I didn't realise it was a kangaroo. I heard the enormous crash and then I could just see this big, brown mound in front of me," Norma told 9 News.

The 1.5 metre (4.9 feet) marsupial kept going after jumping around on top of the couple's bed - hopping around the house and scratching up furniture.

Bill used a dining chair to try and marshall the roo to outside the home, but it ended up retreating behind one of their lounge chairs. A perfect chance to take a photo.

"It's not a very good photo, but it does show that it is in fact a kangaroo and we're not making up this story," Bill told the news outlet.

After ten minutes, the kangaroo finally made its escape out the back door and hopped over a fence in the backyard, ending the standoff.

The roo hasn't been seen since. *Roo mystery intensifies*
