Tweed police appeal for help after woman found critically injured

A woman is fighting for life after being found with critical injuries at a home just over the border.

Emergency services were called to a unit on Elfran Avenue in Pottsville around 6.00pm last night, following reports a 44-year-old woman had been found with head injuries by a family member.

The woman was treated at the scene by paramedics before being rushed to Tweed Heads District Hospital.


She was later transferred to the Gold Coast University Hospital in a critical condition.

Police released a statement a short time ago confirming the woman has since undergone surgery, however her condition remains the same.

A crime scene has been established, with detectives working to determine how and where the woman sustained her injuries.

They’re appealing for anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the nearby area in the hours leading up the discovery of the injured woman to contact Tweed Heads detectives or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
