Investigations remain ongoing following Sunday nights home invasion in Alfredton.

Detectives say three men forced their way into a home on Cuthberts Road and assaulted a 38-year-old man inside, sending him to hospital.
 
Acting Superintendent of Ballarat Police Jason Templar says there's no need for nearby residents to worry.
 
"I can't say a great deal about that investigation at the moment as it's still active."
 
"What I can say is investigators are treating it as an isolated incident, and the public probably don't need to be concerned about similar incidents occurring in Ballarat at this stage," Acting Superintendent Templar said.
 
It remains unclear if the parties were known to each other.
