A 48-year-old Prospect man remains in a serious condition at Launceston General Hospital after he was found with serious head injuries in Launceston in the early hours of Wednesday.

A 23-year-old man, an 18-year-old man and a 17-year-old girl have been charged with aggravated robbery and attempted murder.

The trio appeared at the Launceston Court of Petty Sessions on Saturday.
