Police have charged a 32-year-old Coolum man following an alleged glassing attack that left two people in hospital last weekend.

Officers allege a man assaulted two other men, including a security guard, using a broken stubbie at the Coolum Beach Hotel about 1.30am Sunday.

A 21-year-old hotel patron was allegedly slashed on the face, neck and head, while a 27-year-old security guard from Pacific Paradise was allegedly slashed on the arm.

Both were taken to Nambour General Hospital for treatment for injuries that were described as not life threatening.

The 32-year-old is due to appear in Maroochydore Magistrates Court on July 27 charged with unlawful wounding and assault occasioning bodily harm.

Anyone with information that could assist police should phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

This glassing came just days after police charged a man with grievous bodily harm relating to a glassing attack in Mooloolaba two years ago.

Luke Thompson, then 24, was blinded in his left eye when a 33-year-old Pacific Paradise man allegedly smashed a glass into his face at Zinc nightclub.
