Sergeant Lovaszy said the accused stopped the attack only after a male witness fired a gun.
The accused man, aged 41 from Lawnton, faced court today on two counts of assault occasioning bodily harm and one count each of grievous bodily harm, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and wilful damage.
He then allegedly fled the scene in his car, Sergeant Lovaszy said.
The man and child were treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Kingaroy Hospital.
The accused man was denied bail today and remanded in custody.
He is the second person to be charged over the incident.
A 34-year-old Aldershot man has already been charged with two counts of assault occasioning bodily harm whilst in company, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and wilful damage over the incident, police said in a statement released today.
Police investigations are continuing.
