Airlift after alleged assault

A 20-YEAR-OLD Warwick man has been charged with one count of grievous bodily harm after a 19-year-old was allegedly assaulted in the CBD on Saturday night.

Yesterday morning the victim was unconscious and in a serious condition with a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain.

He was in the high dependency unit at the Princess Alexandra Hospital after being airlifted following the assault in Victoria St at 10.20pm Saturday.

He was in a stable condition by last night.

Warwick police said the two men had an altercation inside a licensed premises earlier in the night.

The 19-year-old was ejected from the premises.

Some time later, the second man left the licensed premises and allegedly punched the 19-year-old who hit the concrete heavily.

"He was treated on the scene by ambulance officers before being taken to hospital," Warwick police said.

"The man was unconscious at the scene and unconscious when he was airlifted to Brisbane just after midnight."

The 20-year-old is due to appear in Warwick Magistrates Court September 11.
