ACT Policing is seeking public assistance to locate a man following a serious assault that occurred at a residence in Duffy in February 2024. 

About 8.30pm on Thursday, 29 February 2024, police allege Michael Williams, alongside three other people, attended a residence in Duffy and seriously assaulted two male occupants in the front yard with hammers and a knife.
