Punched and kicked while down: Teen on assault charge

A ROCKVILLE teenager has been charged following police investigations into an assault in the Toowoomba CBD.

About 2pm on Monday, an altercation took place between two men on Margaret St resulting in one man allegedly being punched in the head and repeatedly kicked after he fell to the ground.

As a result, a 34-year-old North Toowoomba man was transported to Toowoomba Hospital with serious facial injuries.

The 18-year-old Rockville man has been charged with grievous bodily harm and is due to appear in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court on April 10.

The two men are believed to be known to each other.

Police investigations are continuing.
