TWO brothers are expected to be charged with assault-related offences after an altercation with a 44-year-old man on Warrnambool's main street on Tuesday morning.

Warrnambool police Senior Constable Stephen Gray said the man was allegedly assaulted outside the BP services station on Raglan Parade, near the intersection with Laverock Road, about 10am.

"They are all known to each other. It will be alleged the two brothers jumped the other guy and have given him a fair pounding, mainly around the head," he said.

"It will be alleged both brothers repeatedly punched the man while he was on the ground. We have located witnesses to the assault.

"The victim suffered facial injuries. He was transported to the Warrnambool Base Hospital, treated and released."

Senior Constable Gray said it was expected the brothers would be charged with assault-related offences on summons and appear in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court on a date to be fixed.
