An intruder's been detained after allegedly breaking into a home in Hamilton on Friday night.
Three people were inside their Warrah Street home, when one heard noises coming from a bedroom.
The 54 year old went to investigate and allegedly found a 58 year old man standing in the room.
They became involved in a scuffle, resulting in the resident suffering a cut to his head.
Police were called and arrested the intruder.
He's been charged with aggravated break and enter and will face Newcastle Bail Court today.
