A 43-year-old Point Cook man and a 35-year-old Lalor man have been arrested following an alleged aggravated home invasion in Templestowe Lower last week.

The two men were arrested in Carlisle Street in Balaclava about 4.30pm on Wednesday.

Emergency services were called to Linton Avenue just before 1am on Thursday, November 16 after reports a home was broken into and a shot was fired.

Officers have been told that four people were home at the time.

One of the occupants, a 32-year-old man, was allegedly assaulted and taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

No one else was physically injured during the incident.

At this stage, police believe the parties involved were known to each other.

The Lalor man was charged with a number of offences, including aggravated home invasion (firearm), reckless conduct to endanger life, intentionally and recklessly causing serious injury, false imprisonment, two counts of common law assault, and the possession of cocaine and a controlled weapon.

He was remanded overnight to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Thursday.

The Point Cook man was also arrested but remained in hospital under police guard for a pre-existing injury, and will be charged shortly.

Police seized a quantity of cash, two knives, OC spray and a quantity of what appears to be cocaine during the arrests.
