Men flee after assault

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
