A husband and wife were punched in the face after Wednesday night’s State of Origin game when they got into an argument with a man who was urinating on their lawn.

Police said four men were walking along Clifton Street in Petrie Terrace, about 200 metres from Suncorp Stadium, when a man wearing a maroon Queensland t-shirt walked onto a property and started to relieve himself.

A 50-year-old resident came out of the home and tried to get the man off his property, but the man punched him in the face.

Police said the other three men then started attacking the resident on the road. Shortly after, his 52-year-old wife came out of the house wielding a broom.

Police said the first offender then returned to the property four times to try and instigate a fight. On the final occasion he pushed the woman against a parked car and punched her in the face.

The group of men then fled the scene.

The male victim was taken to hospital with facial injuries, and his wife was treated at the house.

Police said the main offender is described as in his early 20s, about 182 centimetres tall with a solid build and brown spiky hair.

Investigators have called for anyone who can identify the group to contact police.

Queensland Police Inspector Peter Aitken said investigators would look at security footage to try and identify the group. 

"It’s a very unfortunate situation. There’s a large group of people [at the game], but only a very small number have resorted to such poor behaviour," he said.

Earlier, Inspector Aitken told 612 ABC Radio there had been a number of cases of people urinating on properties near the stadium on Wednesday night.

However he said revellers on Caxton Street and in the city were generally well behaved, and nearly everyone was home by 12.30am.
