'Random' Crossing Of Paths At Intersection Results In Extremely Violent Death

A 40-year-old man is assisting police after the fatal assault of a man in the south-east Queensland city of Logan.

Emergency services were called to Woodridge at about 5am on Friday after reports of a man lying in the street.

The man was found with multiple injuries to his head, neck and chest after being attacked.

He was taken to Princess Alexandra Hospital with life-threatening injuries but later died.

According to Acting Detective Inspector Chris Knight, the injuries suffered by the man showed a "high degree of violence", but he would not confirm the victim had been stabbed.

"Quite clearly when the ambulance arrived it was plainly evident he had sustained a terribly violent assault," he said.

Shortly after the incident, a 40-year-old man with knowledge of what had occurred approached police at the crime scene.

Knight said the two men were not known to each other.

"There is nothing to suggest that what happened today is anything other than a random connection between the two, and it has escalated very quickly," he said.

"They, unfortunately, crossed paths and the devastating outcome eventuated."

The man has not been charged and police are not looking for any other suspects.
