Man, 75, bashed with bat in Beerwah break-in

Queensland Police are investigating a violent robbery at a house on Burys Road in Beerwah last night in which a 75-year-old man was bashed with a bat.

Police say their initial investigations indicate that four males smashed their way into the house via a glass door, while armed with baseball bats and a gun.

“They made threats to two occupants of the home before striking the male victim on the arm with a bat, then stealing a quantity of personal items and fleeing the scene,” Police said in a statement.

“The 75-year-old man suffered injuries to his arm during the incident.”

Anyone with information that could assist with the investigation is urged to contact police.
