Attempted murder charge, Dysart
A 51-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder after he allegedly attacked another man with a machete in Dysart.
Moranbah detectives will allege the incident happened just after 4am yesterday (June 8) at a Singleton Street address, which resulted in a 52-year-old man sustaining cuts to his head, face and chest.
The man was taken to Mackay Base Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
A crime scene was declared.
The 51-year-old Dysart man was arrested at the corner of Golden Mile and Silver K roads late yesterday afternoon and taken to the Mackay Watchhouse.
He has since been charged with one count each of attempted murder and evasion offence, along with four counts of wilful damage.
The man is expected to appear before the Moranbah Magistrates Court today (June 9).
The men are understood to be known to each other.
Investigations are continuing.
