Tragically, despite medical efforts, he passed away due to his injuries later on Sunday.
Police arrested the 49-year-old shortly after the incident at a nearby unit. He has been charged with one count of murder and is scheduled to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday.
Queensland Police Detective Superintendent Andrew Massingham described the alleged attack as “unprovoked, callous, and heartless”.
As investigations into the incident continue, law enforcement officials are also interviewing residents of the housing block to gather further information and details.
