Two Moera men say they were assaulted after asking a group of strangers outside their flat in Croft Rd to be quiet in the early hours this morning.

Senior Sergeant Paula Holt says one man suffered serious lacerations to the head and the other a dislocated shoulder.

''Residents of one of the flats were woken by a group who were drinking outside, and the occupants went out to tell them to be quiet. As a result two males were assaulted.''

Ms Holt says when police arrived at the flats the group had left.

Both victims were treated at Hutt Hospital.

It is not yet clear how many people were involved in the attack, she says, and police would like to hear from anyone who may have seen the group in the area at the time.

Contact Lower Hutt police on 560 2600 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
