Trio at large after ‘serious’ Blue Bar bashing

Three men remain at large after allegedly bashing another man outside the Blue Bar in Alexandra Headland on Saturday morning.

The victim, understood to be aged in his 30s, was left in a serious way at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital after the 12.30am incident.

Sunshine Coast CIB officer-in-charge detective Senior Sergeant Daren Edwards has urged the trio to "strongly think about coming in" for questioning.

Senior Sergeant Edwards said investigations were raw but police believed at least three people "appeared" to be involved in the assault.

"We have a witness from a nearby unit who watched three men assault him," Snr-Sgt Edwards said.

"The witness yelled out to try and stop it.

"The man is in a very serious way.

"We have spoken to a number of people at the bar but we're trying to firm up where they were.

"They need to think about coming forward."

The man sustained a serious head injury and was taken to hospital in a critical condition.

A media spokeswoman at Sunshine Coast University Hospital said the man was now stable.

Sen-Sgt Edwards said authorities would continue to investigate the incident and look at CCTV footage and collect statements.

Charges are yet to be laid.

The Sunshine Coast Daily contacted management at the Blue Bar who declined to comment.
