Police are investigating an aggravated armed robbery in Chigwell last night where a man received multiple stab wounds.
Around 11.30pm police were called to a residence on Langura Avenue where the 36-year-old resident had received head injuries and multiple stab wounds. He was transferred to the Royal Hobart Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and is in a stable condition.
It is alleged that two men forced entry into the residence armed with a knife. They stole a mobile phone and assaulted the man before leaving the scene.
The males went to lengths to conceal their identity however one of the offenders is described as around 193cm tall, wearing a hooded jumper and wearing a face mask.
Information at this time suggests this is an isolated incident where the victim has been specifically targeted.
Police are investigating and would like to speak to anyone who has information in relation to the incident or suspicious activity in the area. Information can be provided to Tasmania Police on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000.
