Brutal attack leaves M'boro man with head injuries

A MAN has been taken to hospital with serious head injuries after another brutal attack in Maryborough's nightclub district.

Police said about 1.50am on Saturday the 37-year-old Maryborough man was walking on Wharf St when he was set upon by a group of up to three youths who fled after the assault.

A spokesman for Maryborough police said the assault appeared to be an unprovoked attack though it was unclear at this stage if any items were stolen.

"We believe this particular case was an opportunistic attack, however, in a licensed precinct, people need to be aware not to walk alone and don't engage with threatening behaviour."

Witnesses called police to the scene.

The injured man was found a short time later wandering the street.

Ambulance officers took the injured man to Maryborough Hospital.

"The victim sustained serious head wounds," a spokesman said.

"He had a swollen face and a cut above his eye and lip.

"He has also hit his head quite hard on the road after being punched."

Police believe up to three attackers were involved and the Criminal Investigation Branch is investigating.

This latest incident in Wharf St comes just weeks after it was announced the Fraser Coast Regional Council would be given $199, 989 under the Federal Government's Safer Streets Program.

The program will see 27 more CCTV cameras rolled out across proposed Maryborough sites, including Wharf St.
