ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated burglary at the Goldcurves studio on Wollongong Street in Fyshwick this morning (Saturday, July 14).
Around 6.15am, two men rang the studio’s doorbell, not realising it was closed. One of the men kicked in a rear door, allowing both men to enter the studio, before being chased out by two of the owners.
A fight occurred between the two men and the two owners in the front car park on Wollongong Street. One of the owners was hit over the back of his head by a glass bottle and the other owner was punched in the face.
Both men fled the scene on foot in an unknown direction. The two owners were taken to The Canberra Hospital for treatment of injuries sustained during the fight.
