Two men remanded in custody over violent M1 assault

Two men, aged in their 20s, have been remanded in custody for their alleged roles in a horrific road rage assault on the M1.

Neither Jonathan Lawrence or Jordan Baklas appeared in court today, after being charged with grievous bodily harm.

They’ll both front court again tomorrow.


Police accuse the pair of being part of a larger group which attacked 29-year-old Brock Prime on Saturday night at Yatala.

It’s understood there was up to 13 people in the group, with some of them armed.

Mr Prime was taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital where he remains in a critical condition.

Meanwhile, police have released vision in relation to the assault and have appealed for anyone with information to come forward.
