A boy and a girl have been found unharmed in a house where a man and a woman were discovered dead, allegedly killed in a spree of violence that included an attempted car-jacking, assaults and an attempted home invasion.

The bodies of a 55-year-old man and a 45-year-old woman were found when police arrived at a central coast address in a Playford Road, Killarney Vale, home about 8.30pm on Friday.

A short time later, police arrested a 25-year-old man at an industrial estate in Enterprise Drive, Killarney Vale.

A police spokeswoman said detectives had taken a knife from the crime scene for forensic examination.

Police have confirmed the name of the arrested man is Corey Breen, 25. He appeared in Gosford Local Court charged with two counts of murder, where bail was refused.

Police identified a series of violent incidents that occurred during the evening, with police questioning the 25-year-old. These included:
