A 40-YEAR-OLD man is in police custody following the death of another man after a "very violent" assault on the side of a road south of Brisbane.

The man, who was found in the middle of the road at the intersection of Defiance and North roads at Woodridge, was suffering life-threatening injuries and died on the way to the Princess Alexandra Hospital.

Police were called to the scene about 5am to find the man with severe head, back and neck injuries.

Logan Police Acting Detective Inspector Chris Knight said it was a "terribly violent assault" with a "high degree of violence".

A 40-year-old man is currently assisting police with their inquiries, after approaching officers at the scene. He has not been charged.

Inspector Knight said neither drugs nor alcohol were believed to be involved and that the men involved were not known to each other.

A number of crime scenes have been established.

A man who lives just 50m from where the man was found said he heard a "loud scream".

"I was up painting my walls this morning when I heard the scream," he said.

"My neighbours always argue so I thought it was them ...When I saw police outside this morning I had no idea what was going on."

Police have asked anyone who might have seen or heard a disturbance in the area to contact police.

They are also keen for any dashcam or CCTV footage that could help their investigation.
