A 72-year-old man has been taken to hospital after he was assaulted with a tomahawk while sleeping in his bed at Albury yesterday.

About 6.30am (Saturday 1 August 2020), the man and his 77-year-old wife were asleep in separate rooms in their Grafton Street home when he awoke to see a man armed with a tomahawk standing near his bed.

The man threatened him before demanding he hand over the car keys.

A second man armed with a hammer entered the room and a physical altercation occurred.

The man’s wife – who was not injured – was able to call police and the two men fled the house empty- handed.

The injured man was taken to Albury Base Hospital for treatment and remains in a stable condition.

A crime scene was established, and a canvass of the area was conducted.

Detectives from Murray River Police District have commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages.
