Grievous bodily harm charges, Cairns.

Police have charged two men with grievous bodily harm following an incident in Cairns City early this morning.

It will be alleged that around 3am, two men have approached a 29-year-old man on Shields Street and punched him a number of times, knocking him unconscious.

The two men continued to strike the 29-year-old in the head before fleeing the scene on foot.

Police arrested the men on Grafton Street moments later, and they were taken into custody.

The 29-year-old suffered a broken nose and suspected fractured eye socket. He was transported to the Cairns Base Hospital for treatment.

A 52-year-old Torbanlea man and a 40-year-old Clifton View man have been charged with one count each of grievous bodily harm. They are both due to appear in the Cairns Magistrates Court on May 22nd.
