21yo woman suffers medical episode after armed man attacks her car

A young woman is in a serious condition after suffering a medical episode during a frightening altercation at Rainbow Beach yesterday.

It’s alleged the 21-year-old woman was sitting in her vehicle with two young children and a man when an altercation took place between another man in another car.

Police say the man in the other vehicle approached them with a knife and damaged their car before driving away.


During the terrifying attack, the woman suffered a medical episode and was transported to hospital in a serious condition.

A 22-year-old Rainbow beach man has since been charged with threatening violence and wilful damage and is expected to appear at the Gympie Magistrates Court tomorrow.

It is believed the two men involved are known to each other.
