Police are hunting a man over a brutal crow bar assault in Logan overnight.
Three people, including a man and two women, were injured in the incident which is believed to have been sparked over a dog fight.
“Around 11.20pm, a 20-year-old Kingston man let his dog into the front-yard of his Anchusa Street property, where it and another dog became involved in a fight,” Qld police said in a statement.

“The 20-year-old attempted to break up the fight by pushing the other dog away with his foot prompting the owner of the second dog, who was not known to the 20-year-old, to punch him once in the mouth and once to the eye.
“The 20-year-old man retaliated and hit the man back and a few more punches were exchanged before the man fled on foot towards Velorum Drive.”
About 15 minutes later, the man returned to the home with a crowbar and hit a 49-year-old woman in the arm before taking off again.
It wasn’t long before the crowbar-armed man returned, this time with a woman.
Police say he assaulted a second woman at the home, hitting her on the nose, back of her head and her shoulder with the crowbar before fleeing.
The 24-year-old woman was taken to the Princess Alexandra Hospital for treatment of serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
Officers are now appealing for anyone who may have witnessed any suspicious behaviour in the area at the time, or anyone who may have CCTV of the street, to contact them.
Investigations are continuing.
