A HAMILTON man charged with arming himself with a shovel before going to a victim home and making demands for money, will appear in court today.

Warrnambool police Sergeant Jo Wastell said the 36-year-old Hamilton man would appear in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court on Monday for a bail/remand hearing.

He has been charged with aggravated burglary and associated offences.

The man was scheduled to appear in court charged with driving offences, including drug driving.

Sergeant Wastell said police would allege the man went to a Hamilton address about 8am on Sunday.

The male victim was at home with his three-year-old son.

The victim heard noises in his garage, went to investigate and found the accused standing at the garage entrance armed with a shovel handle.

The accused man was arrested on Sunday, interviewed by police officers, charged and remanded in custody to appear in court.

Sergeant Wastell said there was also a 41-year-old Warrnambool man and a 49-year-old Hamilton man in the Warrnambool police station cells charged with offences relating to family violence.
