TWO males charged after two boys were hit in the face with paint pellets whilst out trick-or-treating.

Police said that around 7.15pm, a group of boys were walking along Pelican Waters Boulevard, on the Sunshine Coast, when two of them were struck with paint pellets, fired from a passing vehicle.

One of the boys was hit near his eye, suffering serious eye damage, whilst the other was hit on the cheek. The pair, both aged 15, were taken to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital for treatment.

A 17-year-old male and another 18-year-old male have been charged with two counts each of assault occasioning bodily harm.

They are due to appear at the Caloundra Magistrates Court on November 22.

  • There is proper places for doing paint ball and people take precautions. They certainly don’t aim for a person’s head. I know of people who have done it in an organised event who have got some big bruises where they got hit with a paintball. You certainly would suffer injuries if you were hit on the head at all.
    I’m glad the culprits were caught and hope they don’t get suspended sentences


  • How stupid can you get! I hope the recovery is fast and full


  • Utter stupidity and downright recklessness! Hope they are punished accordingly and not just a slap on the wrist. Thank goodness the two young boys were okay – they could have been blinded!


  • These 2 men who have been charged are hardly men, still boys teens. And teens can be unthoughtful and careless. Hope they learnt their lesson.


  • Ouch! That would have really hurt! Silly teens!


  • What a stupid stupid thing to do! Hope they don’t just get a stern talking to and sent on their way.


  • That’s terrible. It could have ended up so bad!!


  • I hope they get convicted.


  • what idiots! – so happy to read they were caught and charged! Shame on them for ruining some younger kids fun. I hope the two injured boys will be ok


  • Stupidity – and now they, their victims ad thir families are suffering.


  • I am glad they were caught and l hope the boys injured will be alright.


  • Such a terrible act and why on earth would they do it – senseless.
