Man accused of glassing at CBD pub

UPDATE: Baden Joseph Merrell-Breeze appeared before Toowoomba Magistrates Court late Monday and was refused bail.


He will re-appear in the same court next month for mention on the charge of grievous bodily harm.


EARLIER: A 20-YEAR-OLD Toowoomba man has been charged with grievous bodily harm after allegedly glassing a 26-year-old man in the beer garden of Fitzy's Fibber Magee pub.

Paramedics were called to the CBD pub shortly before 1am today to treat the man with serious cuts to the side of his face.

Toowoomba Criminal Investigation Branch acting-officer-in-charge Scott Stahlhut said police would allege Baden Joseph Merrell-Breeze pushed a glass into his victim's face, causing the glass to shatter.

"He will require surgery," Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Stahlhut said of the victim.

The victim was taken from the pub to Toowoomba Hospital in a stable condition.

Fitzy's Fibber Magee general manager Brad Fitzgibbons said he was shocked by the attack.

"I have viewed the footage for myself," Mr Fitzgibbons said.

"There was certainly conversation between the two groups.

"At the time of the incident we had sufficient staff on and sufficient security.

"As with any incident and particularly any serious incident such as this it makes us go back and look at our policies and procedures."

Merrell-Breeze will be making a bail application in Toowoomba Magistrates Court this afternoon.
