A gun, baseball bat and man hit by a car?

A GUN, a baseball bat and a man hit by a car.

The reports coming from Howlong were unusual to say the least and that was before a man walked into the Albury hospital with two puncture wounds in his back.

Albury detectives are piecing together a series of bizarre reports from Boxing Day evening that related to an alleged violent assault in the town.

Albury police Inspector David Cottee said a male resident confronted a small group of people about 11pm in Sturt Street after they banged fences in the street.

“The man is alleged to have assaulted two of the group while a third man ran to seek assistance from another house,” Insp Cottee said.

The resident of that other house was also allegedly assaulted.

“There are a number of differing versions of the events, including reports of a firearm and baseball bats being produced as the melee continued,” Insp Cottee said.

“It is also alleged that a short time later a dark-coloured sedan was driven directly at one of the men and collided with him, forcing him over the bonnet and the roof of the car.”

Insp Cottee confirmed a man was treated for two puncture wounds and a perforated bowel at the Albury hospital that related to the incident.

Detectives are asking for anyone who witnessed the incidents to come forward.
