A BRIS­BANE man has been left swollen and bruised af­ter he was punched from be­hind in Air­lie Beach early on Sun­day morn­ing. Po­lice al­lege the 29-year-old was wait­ing for a taxi about mid­night, when a man, un­known to him, ap­proached him from be­hind and punched him in the head.

The man then ran away, po­lice said.

Po­lice are still in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent but have urged any­one who may have wit­nessed it to con­tact them as soon as pos­si­ble.
