A man will face a Queensland court on Monday charged with torturing and trying to murder his housemate.
Police had to perform CPR on the 51-year-old victim, who remains in hospital in a critical condition.
Officers could not confirm reports the badly injured man was tied up when officers responded to reports of a disturbance at a house at Ipswich, west of Brisbane, on Sunday.
