A man has been charged following an alleged assault in Inverell yesterday morning.

About 12.30am, officers attached to New England Police District attended a unit on Hindmarsh Street following reports of an assault and will allege a 59-year-old man attended the unit where he assaulted a 62-year-old man with a firearm, before leaving the scene.

The injured man was taken to Inverell Hospital for treatment to lacerations to his face and arm and has since been released.

Following inquiries, police attended a unit on Macintyre Street and a police operation was established when they could not gain entry to the premises.

A short time later, a 59-year-old man was arrested without incident.

Police searched the premises where they allegedly located a shotgun and cannabis with those items were seized for forensic examination.

The man was taken to Inverell Police Station where he was charged with specially aggravated break and enter, possession of unauthorised prohibited firearm, and possess prohibited drug.

He was refused bail and will appear at Tamworth Local Court today (Friday 28 June 2024).

Inquiries have led police to believe the two men are known to each other.
