Police are seeking witnesses to an aggravated assault which occurred at 5.30 am on Thursday morning.
At the time, a man was preparing to commence earth moving work on Drovers Road, when a vehicle pulled up nearby.
He was approached and subsequently assaulted by two men, thought to be aged in their twenties.
Both of the men were dressed in zip-up jumpers and baseball style caps.
As a result of the assault the victim was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
One offender may have sustained back and neck injuries as a result of the victim fighting back.
The two men fled the scene and were last seen driving east on Drovers Road, toward the Augusta Highway in a sedan, similar to a Holden Commodore.
Anyone with information who may have been in the Warnertown area, or who may have seen a vehicle in the vicinity is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report it online.
