A MAN requires ongoing medical treatment after a “brutal attack” at the Manhattan Apartments in Civic during March.
The attack, involving three male offenders, occurred around 9.50pm on March 14. The three males, who were wearing balaclavas kicked down the door to the apartment and threatened the two occupants – a man and a women.
During a brief scuffle the male occupant suffered head injuries and the woman also suffered minor injuries.
A small amount of cash was taken and the male occupant was transported to hospital.
Officer in Charge Criminal Investigations Response detective acting station sergeant Tony Crocker says police take instances of violence seriously and have released “facefit” images so the public can help identify the offenders.
“Police, and the Canberra community, will not tolerate violence. This was a brutal attack which resulted in significant injury to the victim’s face which requires ongoing medical treatment,” he says.
“We asking that members of the public who recognise the images of these two men contact police. Every little bit of information could help.”
