Police are appealing for information following a home invasion in Tweed Heads last night (Tuesday, August 23).

About 7.40pm emergency services were called to Seymour Street after a man was found injured near a unit block.

The victim was treated at the scene before being taken to Gold Coast Hospital with serious head injuries.

Detectives have since been told that the man was in the garage of the premises when he was approached by two men and assaulted. As a result of the assault, the man lost consciousness.

Investigators would like to speak to two men who they believe may be able to assist with their investigations.

No descriptions are available at this stage but officers would like to speak to anyone who heard or saw anything unusual in the area between 6pm and 7pm on Tuesday.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/
