Tasmania Police Seeking Go Pro

Two men have been charged following an aggravated burglary at a Devonport residence late last night where a man was seriously injured.

Around 11.30pm two men entered a residence on Croft Avenue and assaulted the male resident with what is alleged to have been a paling and a metal pole.

The injured resident was transported to the Launceston General Hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

As part of the ongoing police investigation, early this morning two men were charged in relation to the incident.

A 45-year-old man from Burnie and a 29-year-old man from Devonport were both charged with Aggravated Burglary and Assault. They will appear before the Court at a later date.

Police would like to assure the community this was not a random attack and the men involved were known to each other.

Anyone with any further information in relation to the incident is asked to contact Devonport CIB on 6478 4036 or Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000.
