Grievous Bodily Harm at Kingston

Police are appealing for public assistance as part of their investigation into the grievous bodily harm of a 21-year-old man at Kingston on Friday night.

Around 11.00pm (October 18), a 21-year-old man and his 25-year-old friend were in a carpark, outside an Aquatic Centre on Kingston Road, when they were approached by a group of approximately 7 or 8 men who were not known to them.

One of the group-members hit the 21-year-old man over the back of the head with a glass bottle, causing him to fall to the ground where the group assaulted him.

The 25-year-old man was attempting to flee when he felt something hit the back of his head, causing him to stumble into an oncoming vehicle.

The group then assaulted the 25-year-old before he managed to run away.

Members of the group then accessed the 25-year-old’s car and stole his iPhone 6S and the 21-year-old’s Samsung mobile phone.

Once the group dispersed, the 25-year-old returned to his friend who was unconscious. Two witnesses contacted emergency services.

The 21-year-old Kingston man sustained a fractured skull and was transported to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in a serious condition where he remains in an induced coma.

The 25-year-old Woodridge man sustained a laceration to his head and was transported to Logan Hospital in a stable condition.

The group members are described as being in their early twenties and having dark complexions.

Police are now appealing to anyone who may have witnessed anything – or may have dashcam footage – in the vicinity of Kingston Road around from 11.00pm to 12.00am on Friday October 18, to come forward.
