At around 9.50pm a man attended an address on Cinnamon Way and allegedly struck a 55-year-old man in the head with an object when he opened the front door.

It is further alleged the man stabbed the 55-year-old a number of times in the arm.

After a short struggle between the pair outside the home the man fled the scene.

The 55-year-old was transported to Ipswich Hospital with non-life-threatening head and arm injuries.
