Qld man hospitalised after pole bashing
A 23-year-old man is in a serious condition in hospital after he was struck over the head several times with a metal pole during an assault at Ipswich, west of Brisbane.
Police say the man was attacked shortly after six people arrived at a home in Booval at approximately 9.15pm on Sunday in relation to an ongoing dispute.
A fight between the people and residents at the house broke out, with the alleged offenders fleeing in two cars before the injured man was taken to the Princess Alexandra Hospital where he remains in a serious condition.
