Sunshine Coast detectives are seeking urgent public assistance to help locate two young children who were removed from a home at Beerwah yesterday following an alleged violent confrontation with the occupants of the residence.
It is understood four to six people- at least two women and two men- attended a Greber Road home around 9.30am yesterday, Tuesday November 21.
Police will allege the two adult occupants of the house- a 31-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman- were threatened by the group before the woman was struck on the head with a metal pole, sustaining a laceration to her head that required hospital treatment.
Two children, a three-year-old girl and her one-year-old brother were removed from the house, with the group then leaving with the children.
The identities of those involved are known to police however officers have been unable to locate them to check on the safety and welfare of the children.
It is possible the children have been taken to the Toowoomba area.
