Beenleigh home torched in domestic violence dispute

A couple will face court after both allegedly contravened domestic violence orders that led to a house fire just north of the Gold Coast.

Police say the pair got into an argument at a Beenleigh home, about 11.30am on Saturday.

During the argument the 43-year-old woman has allegedly stabbed the man with a steak knife causing two minor wounds to the stomach.


The man, 28, is then accused of dousing the Sunnyview Street house in petrol before setting it alight.


Emergency crews arrived and he was taken by ambulance to Princess Alexandra Hospital before being released and charged with arson and assault.

The woman has been charged with wounding.

Both will face Beenleigh Magistrates Court tomorrow, also accused of contravening domestic violence orders.
