An attack on father and son in Dargo

SALE detectives are investigating an alleged assault on two Dargo residents in their home early on Easter Sunday.

The criminal investigation unit is looking into reports that a 55-year-old man and his 22-year-old son were assaulted by intruders wielding lumps of wood about 2am on April 21.
