Man’s fingers severed in samurai sword attack at Qld caravan park

A MAN has had four fingers and part of his thumb cut off after allegedly being attacked with a samurai sword at a caravan park in Aspley.

The violent fight is understood to have broken out at a location on Gympie Road just before 8.30pm last night.

“It will be alleged two men were involved in a physical altercation when one man assaulted the other with a samurai sword,” Qld police said in a statement.


A 45-year-old man was rushed to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital to undergo emergency surgery, while a 40-year-old man was arrested at the scene and charged with one count of grievous bodily harm.

He’s due to appear in the Pine Rivers Magistrates Court today.
