Man charged after stabbing brother

POLICE have charged a Gold Coast man with stabbing his younger brother during an argument outside a Brassall Hotel.

An 18-year-old man had to be taken to the Princess Alexandra Hospital about 10pm Sunday after suffering a stab wound to the top of his right shoulder.

Police allege his 20-year-old brother inflicted the wound with a pocket knife during an argument which erupted while the pair was walking home from the Mi Hi Tavern.

The men had gone out following a family get-together earlier on Sunday.

The younger brother's injury was described as non-life threatening and he was only taken to the PA Hospital because Ipswich was full and on bypass at the time.

A 20-year-old Gold Coast man was later charged with unlawful wounding and possessing a knife in public.

He will face Ipswich Magistrates Court on Monday.
