Ute ploughs through Brisbane home as man fights off intruders

Police are urging people with information about the incident to come forward.

Dramatic footage has revealed the moment a man was allegedly stabbed during a brutal break-and-enter, in which a ute crashed through a Brisbane home on Thursday afternoon.

The chaotic footage from inside the house, obtained by 7News, shows a man launching a metal scooter at a group of men after they allegedly broke into the residence. As he runs at them with the scooter, one man appears to stab him as the trio scurry off with goods.

In that same moment, a ute crashes through the front of the home, at which point the three men take their opportunity to depart — but not before the man clips one of them on the back of the head with the scooter, and races out behind them.

Man taken to hospital, police investigating incident

The violent incident occurred in broad daylight at about 2.15pm on Thursday on Bahrs Scrub Road in the Brisbane suburb of Logan.

According to Queensland Police, a 49-year-old confronted the three people who allegedly broke into the home, leading to a physical altercation in which the man sustained a stab wound to the stomach.

"A waiting Ford Ranger, stolen from Algester on May 17, has then driven into the front of the home, causing damage. The group have then entered the car and driven from the scene," a statement from a Queensland Police spokesperson reads.

Afterwards, the 49-year-old was taken to Logan Hospital in stable condition. Detectives from Logan Criminal Investigation Branch are now investigating the incident and urge anyone with information or relevant CCTV footage to come forward.

No arrests have been made at this stage, a spokesperson confirmed to Yahoo News Australia on Friday.
