Police attacked, cars smashed as house party becomes war zone

A WILD house party has left a policeman injured and a home trashed in Melbourne's southwest.

Police were called to the Attunga Grove, Werribee home after receiving reports of an out-of-control house party about 3.30am but were forced to retreat when partygoers began pelting officers with rocks.

The house was available for rent online.
