An elderly man has been hospitalised in a serious condition after an alleged assault on the Capricorn Coast.

Queensland Police were called to reports of a serious assault at a private address in Mulambin around 6:10pm on Wednesday night, where a 65-year old man had been injured.

The man was treated for face and back injuries by Queensland Ambulance personnel, before he was transported to Yeppoon Hospital in a serious but stable condition. He was then further transported to Rockhampton Hospital.

Police report that no weapons were used, though the incident was classed as serious due to the victims age.
