Man attacked with a business sign in CBD

A MAN was injured after a business sign was thrown at him in an unprovoked attack in the Mackay CBD overnight.

Police allege an intoxicated man, believed to be in his 20s, indigenous in appearance and wearing a red shirt, threw the sign at the victim after shouting "What are you looking at?”.

He then fled the scene.

Paramedics assessed the man who was later taken to Mackay Base Hospital with injuries to his torso.
