Man bashed, car stolen from boat ramp car park
WHAT started as a request for a cigarette ended with a man being bashed and having his car stolen.
A police spokeswoman said the man was sitting in his blue Ford Falcon sedan about 1.25am today at the Kirby's Wall boat ramp car park when two men and a woman pulled up in a blue hatchback.
After asking the man for a cigarette the offenders assaulted the man and pulled him from his vehicle before stealing the car and driving away.
The car was last seen near the Bundaberg Rum Distillery.
A Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman confirmed paramedics responded to the Kirby's Wall boat ramp car park shortly before 2am where they treated a 40-year-old man for injuries to his face and ribs.
The man was taken to Bundaberg Hospital in a stable condition for further treatment.
Police are still searching for the offenders and the stolen blue Ford Falcon sedan.
