Duo charged over stabbing, attempted firebombing at Biggera Waters

TWO men have been charged over the alleged stabbing and attempted firebombing at a unit in Biggera Waters yesterday.

The incident is just one of four violent scuffles that occurred across the Gold Coast over the weekend, with police revealing all are believed to involve members of rival outlaw motorcycle gangs.

A special taskforce has been set up to investigate the incidents, which detectives say were sparked over a “need of greed and power”.

A brawl then erupted on the footpath outside, with a 22-year-old man stabbed multiple times in his stomach and chest and 42-year-old man suffering stab wounds to his torso and face.

Both men self-presented at the Gold Coast University Hospital a short time later.

Following investigations, police today charged a 26-year-old man from Upper Coomera with two counts of wounding and a 42-year-old man from Redland Bay with attempted arson and dangerous conduct with a weapon.

Both are due to face Southport Magistrates Court today as investigations continue.
