A fight at a Gold Coast home in which a woman was doused with petrol on Sunday night was sparked by an argument over a car, police said on Monday.
Police are urgently hunting two men in their 40s of Pacific Islander appearance, saying they are considered armed and dangerous. The men fled the fight scene and stole a car nearby, after bashing two men in their 20s who were standing beside it and threatening one with a gun.
However, the woman doused in petrol, her partner and two other men who became embroiled in a fight with the pair at a Carrara home are not aiding investigators with their search.
The group has refused to speak with police about the incident, Detective Acting Inspector Mark Procter said.
Inspector Procter said they are urgently hunting the men, both of Maori or Pacific Islander appearance, who fled the scene of the fight armed with at least one gun.
The police officer said the pair, who arrived at the Carrara home in a Volkswagen Passat stolen from Currumbin in July, were considered dangerous.
They later fled the scene on foot, before bashing two men in their 20s who were standing alongside a car in a nearby street, threatening one of them with a sawn-off shotgun and stealing his car.
The men stole a silver 2007 Ford Falcon sedan with the Queensland registration 240 VQT to escape the fight scene.
“If anyone sees that motor vehicle, contact police as a matter of urgency, they are armed with shotgun and thought to be dangerous,” he said.
Inspector Procter said they were last seen heading towards Nerang.
A woman was doused in petrol when she opened her front door to a group of men on the northern Gold Coast late Sunday night.
She was the second person to be doused in petrol on the Gold Coast on Sunday, after an 18-year-old man suffered critical injuries when he was set alight in a Southport street about 7.30am.
The woman was not injured.
The group forced their way into her Carrara home and a fight erupted between her partner, and later with two other men who came to the couple’s assistance.
Two of the intruders are also thought to be responsible for assaulting two men standing beside a parked car in a nearby street a short time later.
The man was threatened with a shotgun and bashed by two men, who police believe fled the home where the fight occurred.
They then stole the man’s car.
Police are hunting two men over the two attacks.
They said in the first incident, the woman opened her front door to a group of men who were loudly hammering on it about 10pm.
As soon as she opened the door, one man threw petrol on her, causing her to back away.
A man inside then confronted the men and a fight ensued.
Two other men came to the couple’s assistance after and also became involved in the fight.
One of the intruders, a 52-year-old man, suffered cuts to his face and shoulder and was taken to Gold Coast University Hospital in a stable condition, after calling for help when he fled the home.
In the second incident, two men, one armed with a shotgun, approached two men standing by a parked car and threatened them with the weapon.
The armed man bashed the two victims and threatened one with the gun, before demanding the keys to the car.
After taking the keys both offenders then drove off in the car.
Both victims, aged 21 and 23, suffered facial injuries.
The 23-year-old was treated by paramedics at the scene, while the 21-year-old was taken to Gold Coast University Hospital.
The offenders are both described as of Maori or Pacific Islander appearance.
The first man has a large build with a shaved head and tattoos.
At the time of the attacks, he was not wearing a shirt and was armed with a shotgun.
The second man was wearing a black hooded jumper and black pants and was carrying a satchel or bag.
He may have also been carrying weapon.
The stolen vehicle is a silver 2007 Ford Falcon sedan with the Queensland registration 240 VQT.
