Police make arrest in Symes St case

UPDATE 3:30PM: Stanthorpe Police officer in charge Acting Senior Sergeant Damian Grace said a 28-year-old Stanthorpe man was arrested and charged in relation to Saturday's violent incident at Symes St.

"The offender was charged with one count of grievous bodily harm," he said.  "He will appear in Stanthorpe Magistrates Court on July 17."

 

4AM: The Stanthorpe man assaulted at the weekend remains in intensive care in an induced coma at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane.

The 27-year-old was assaulted at a Stanthorpe residence on Saturday night.

A family member of the victim said the family was shocked to receive a phone call about the incident on the night.

"He has extensive head and facial injuries and is still under sedation in an induced coma," the family member said.

"Police said they knew who the culprit was but it looked like 10 people attacked him."

The family member said the man was stable but they had to wait patiently until he regained consciousness.

"Not knowing is difficult. He is still in intensive care so it is just a waiting game," the family member said.

Stanthorpe Police officer in charge Acting Senior Sergeant Damian Grace said everyone present during the incident had co-operated with police.

"A fight occurred between a 27-year-old male and a 28-year-old male at the Symes St residence around 9pm on Saturday," he said.

"Police investigations are continuing, with inquiries pending in relation to the known 28-year-old.

"It appears it was a small gathering of friends having a few beers and the two men had a friendship.

"No charges have yet been laid."
