Violent Monto home invasion leaves men with brain trauma

TWO men were bashed so severely during a violent home invasion in Monto they sustained horrific brain injuries and had to be flown to a Brisbane hospital for urgent treatment.

Bundaberg Police Detective Sergeant David Tucker said two people dressed in balaclavas entered a Gladstone St home at 11.45pm on Saturday night where a woman and two men lived.

"One of the men was in a bed at the back of the residence and another man was asleep on a lounge," he said.

"The woman was in a bedroom.

"Two male persons have entered the residence and proceeded to assault the male victim located in the rear of the house with a weapon."

Det Sgt Tucker said the offenders then moved into the lounge room where they began to violently assault the man who was asleep on the lounge.

"As a result, a 47-year-old man received serious brain trauma and is currently in the intensive care unit at the Royal Brisbane Hospital with serious head injuries and multiple fractures," he said.

"The other 50-year-old man sustained fractures to the face as well and a fractured arm."

He was also flown to the Brisbane hospital.

Det Sgt Tucker said the woman was unharmed in the incident but was left incredibly shaken.

He said the motive for the attack was unknown and police were hunting the offenders.

"This is a cowardly attack because both victims were asleep at the time," Det Sgt Tucker said.

"They were given no opportunity to defend themselves.

"The persons responsible for this don't deserve to be walking around in the community."

Det Sgt Tucker urged anyone who may have information on the brutal attacks, to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Alternatively, they can call Bundaberg Police on 4153 9111.
