A STAWELL man has been charged with a range of offences following an incident in the town's east late last week.
Uniformed police were called a Centenary Court address on Friday night and arrested a 35-year-old Stawell man following allegations of aggravated burglary, criminal damage and assault.
The man has been remanded in custody to appear at Horsham Magistrates Court later at a later date.
The news comes as police urge residents to voice their safety concerns via the Community Safety Survey.
Launched earlier this month, the region's police are giving residents of the Northern Grampians, Ararat and the Yarriambiack shires the opportunity to directly inform police priorities.
Northern Grampians Local Area Commander Jo Janes said members across the region were eager to listen to their local communities.
"Local police live and raise families within rural communities. Meaning on a personal level police are also very passionate about community safety and have a vested interest in making the community safe for everyone," she said.

Police are urging people to include their postcode so that responses can be tailored to the right areas.
Stawell Police also urged residents to continue to help local officers by reporting local issues at the Stawell Police Station (5358 8222), the Police Assistance Line (131 444 for non-urgent matters) or Crime Stoppers (1800 333 000).
