The boy suffered a puncture wound and was taken to Mater Children's Hospital, a Department of Community Services spokeswoman said.

The apparent attack occurred close to Harris Fields State School but an Education Queensland spokeswoman said the principal had investigated and did not believe the boy was a student there.
