It will be alleged the men are known to each other.

Two men, aged 41 and 43, have been charged with attempted murder, entering a dwelling with intent to commit an indictable offence, and extortion.

Both were remanded in custody and are expected to appear before the Brisbane Magistrates Court on May 23.
