Police operation on Holdsworth Road

UPDATE 7.30pm: A man has been charged with aggravated burglary after he broke into a North Bendigo home and assaulted two people. 

The man, 37, went to the Holdsworth Road home on Friday morning to see his ex-partner.

Upon finding another man in the home, he left briefly and returned with a crow bar. 

The occupants inside the home had locked the house in his absence but he re-entered by smashing a window next to the front door.

He assaulted a man and a woman, leaving the man with a fractured arm. 

Sergeant Jason Bourke said the man absconded to a creek behind the home and walked to hospital for treatment of minor injuries. 

After searching for the man in the creek area behind the home, police located him at the hospital and took him into custody.

UPDATE 11.30am: A man has admitted himself to hospital after breaking into a North Bendigo home and assaulting two of its occupants.

The 37-year-old is in police custody as he receives treatment for injuries from smashing a window to enter the house. 

Sergeant Jason Bourke said the man assaulted two people with a crow bar before absconding to the creek behind the home.

The man then took himself to hospital.

Sergeant Bourke said the man went to the house to confront his ex-partner.

A male injured in the assault was later escorted out of the house to be treated by paramedics.

A woman and two children later left the home. 

In a twist, the injured man was also wanted by police for unrelated matters.

Sergeant Bourke said he was wanted for failing to appear at court.

The incident is under investigation by the Bendigo Crime Investigation Unit.

UPDATE 11am: A man emerged from a Holdsworth Road home with a heavily bandaged right arm.

He has just left the scene in an ambulance.

A neighbour told the Bendigo Advertiser she called police earlier today when she saw a man enter the home holding a metal pole.

The neighbour said she heard screaming coming from the home, prompting her to call triple zero.

"I rang police because I was worried about her," the neighbour said, referring to the woman inside the house.

"I hope the kids are OK."

She said there were two children inside the home.
