A father who was left with horrific facial injuries after being bashed and robbed in his Queensland home was ambushed by his own son, police allege.

Jamie John Hewitt, 51, from Ambrose, west of Gladstone, was allegedly cable tied and beaten to a pulp by his son Zachariah, 30, and two other men on August 4.

Police allege the assault lasted two hours before the trio ransacked Mr Hewitt’s home and fled in his ute. 

The 51-year-old, who requires facial reconstruction surgery on both cheeks following the alleged attack, said the men made off with ‘everything they could’.

‘I was at home about 11 o’clock (am) and these three lads [allegedly] turned up and started talking to me… I’m pretty devastated about it,’ Mr Hewitt said.

‘They came in and they [allegedly] cable tied me, bashed me and ransacked the house. They [allegedly] stole my ute and wheels, and anything they could load into the back of it.’

His ute was found a short time later, but his custom painted Adela wheels, worth $600 each, haven’t been recovered.  

Zachariah was charged with deprivation of liberty, grievous bodily harm, armed robbery, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, enter dwelling with intent, and enter dwelling to commit an indictable offence.

He appeared before the Gladstone Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

Two men, 25 and 22,  were also charged over the alleged incident.
