    I'm in Queensland.

    If a person knocks on the door of a dwelling, receives no answer, then finds the door is unlocked and proceeds to enter, where they find the resident inside and the resident doesn't ask them to leave because they were expecting them...

    ...but then the person goes on to steal property out of the dwelling and assault the resident, is this considered burglary or theft under criminal law?

    Thanks in advance.
