INVESTIGATIONS CONTINUING INTO TWEED HEADS ASSAULT

Strike Force Ypres has been set up to investigate the serious assault of a man at Tweed Heads West earlier this week.

Police have been told two men, aged 54 and 47, were involved in an altercation on Kennedy Drive at around 6 o’clock on Wednesday afternoon, when it’s alleged the younger of the pair assaulted the older man.

Paramedics were called around an hour later, with the 54-year-old taken to Gold Coast University Hospital in a critical but stable condition.

The younger man’s been charged with recklessly causing grievous bodily harm and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
