Sunraysia locals with information on an incident that occurred in Dareton earlier this week are being urged to come forward.
A man had awoken to a vehicle driving up his residential driveway, and went to investigate the noise.
He was reportedly confronted by three males; described as Aboriginal, wearing dark clothing and variously armed with a knife, a screw driver, and a walking stick.
A fight broke out after the men allegedly demanded drugs and money, with the victim being struck with the walking stick.
Some of the males entered the home briefly, before all fled in a silver four-wheel-drive.
Locals with information that may assist in investigations are being encouraged to call Dareton Police, or report to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
