BREAKING: Wanted man arrested over alleged serious assault

A MAN wanted in relation to a serious assault was allegedly found in a Hervey Bay home on Wednesday.

Detective Senior Sergeant Dave Harbison said police had been searching for the man for about a week after the incident in Urangan St which left a 45 year old man in a critical condition on September 4.

The 32-year-old accused will appear before Hervey Bay Magistrates Court charged with grievous bodily harm on Thursday.

He said a member of the public had reported the man's location before police tracked him to a nearby property where he was found and taken into custody without incident.

"The arrest today is a result of good police work," he said.

Det Snr Sgt Harbison said the victim and the alleged offender were known to each other socially.

He said the victim remained in a critical condition in Brisbane Royal and Womens Hospital.

He has not regained consciousness since the assault.

Det Snr Sgt Harbison said it was believed there had been a verbal argument inside a Torquay dwelling before the alleged assault.

He said a weapon had not been used in the alleged attack
