Man stabbed after disturbing intruder
POLICE are investigating after a man was stabbed during a break-in at his home in Benaraby on Tuesday afternoon.
About 4.40pm, a 55-year-old man returned to his home on the Bruce Hwy to find another man inside.
The man confronted the intruder and a physical altercation broke out in which the 55-year-old received stab wounds to his hands, shoulder and head.
He was taken to Gladstone Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police believe the offender fled the scene south on the Bruce Hwy in a car which had been stolen from Rockhampton earlier in the day.
The car may have been the same one involved in a crash earlier in the day.
