A man has undergone surgery to remove glass from his eyes after he was the victim of a botched break and enter.
The 39-year-old man was at his Albury home on Monday evening when two men tried to kick in the front door, then smashed a glass window, injuring the man.
The two men fled the scene.
A 23-year-old woman and two-year-old child were also at the home.
Police were called to the unit just after 11.20pm. The man was treated at the scene then taken to hospital, where he underwent surgery.
Police are appealing for information about the incident.
