Toowoomba South MP David Janetzki says residents need to feel safe in their homes after an elderly man was bashed in one of many robberies on his property.
Kearney Spring's Dawayne Duffy, who suffers from cancer, was left with a fractured eye socket during the incident.
The Toowoomba South MP says it is a huge concern:
"It always worries me when the vulnerable, elderly and unwell tells me about crime in their community.
That's why I will be speaking with council about more street lighting and police about additional patrols".
