Gang of six allegedly wield hammers, bats in home invasion
A GOODNA man has been charged after six people allegedly assaulted a man with baseball bats and hammers inside a Silkstone home yesterday.
Police allege at about 5.15pm, six men armed with baseball bats and hammers entered a house on Prospect St and assaulted a 25-year-old man before fleeing the scene in a vehicle.
The man had minor injuries to his arm and was treated at the scene.
Initial investigations suggest the men are known to each other, police say.
A 25-year-old Goodna man has been charged with one count each of entering a dwelling with intent and assault occasioning bodily harm.
He is due to appear in the Ipswich Magistrates Court today.
Investigations into the incident are continuing.
