Man charged after alleged glassing at Coolangatta pub

A 21-year-old man has been charged with grievous bodily harm, after allegedly glassing an older man at the Coolangatta Hotel.

Queensland Police say the 34-year-old victim asked a woman, who was dancing with the 21-year-old man, to stop bumping into him.

The younger man allegedly hit the 34-year-old with a glass, cutting a 10cm long gash into the man’s face.


He tried to run off but was stopped by friends of the older man.

The 34-year-old is recovering in the Gold Coast University Hospital with serious injuries to his ear and face.

The 21-year-old is expected to front Southport Court today.
