A Brisbane man will front court accused of knocking his father off a motorcycle and trying to run him down in a car.

A Brisbane man’s been accused of attempting to kill his father by knocking him off a motorcycle and repeatedly trying to run him over.

It’s alleged the 29-year-old drove to a Capalaba house on Wednesday and waited there for his father.

When the older man arrived, the son reversed into his motorbike, knocking him off, and then repeatedly tried to run him down.

The 54-year-old father sustained minor injuries.

The son is facing charges of attempted murder, acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm, and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. He will face the Cleveland Magistrates Court on Thursday.
