Attempted murder charge, Caboolture
Detectives charged a 27-year-old man with attempted murder after he allegedly drove over a woman in Caboolture on Saturday night, 17 April, 2021.
Initial information indicates just after 11pm the man attended a Namatjia Court address in a white Nissan Patrol and performed a ‘burnout’ in the backyard.
When a 47-year-old Peachester woman went to confront the driver, it is alleged he drove over her repeatedly, causing significant injuries to her left leg and foot.
It will be further alleged he drove over property, before ramming a car.
Another woman at the address, aged 42, used another vehicle to reverse into the man’s Patrol.
The man then climbed out through the window of the heavily damaged Patrol and fled the scene on foot.
A 27-year-old man from Moonee in New South Wales was arrested in the area shortly afterwards and taken to the Caboolture Hospital, where he was cleared of any injuries.
He has since been charged with one count of attempted murder and was scheduled to appear in the Caboolture Magistrates Court today (April 19).
The woman was transported to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
Those involved are understood to be known to each other.
