A young woman has been beaten, tortured and locked in a shipping container in an alleged domestic dispute in Queensland.
A woman was heard screaming by neighbors at a property in Tallai. Police were called to the property about 11.15pm on Saturday.
The Gold Coast Bulletin reports when police arrived they were met by a man claiming to be alone at the residence.
After police searched the property they discovered a young woman bound and gagged and locked in a shipping container.
It was not known how long she had been held there.
She was taken to hospital in a serious condition for injuries sustained from being beaten and tortured.
The 29-year-old man was arrested and allegedly resisted, kicking out a patrol vehicle's window as he was being taken to the watchhouse.
The man has been charged with torture, deprivation of liberty, attempted murder and wilful damage to a police vehicle.
