A Warwick man was bitten on the ear in an attack by a stranger in the early hours of Sunday morning.

A spokesperson from Queensland Police media said police were called by the victim at about 3am.

"It is unknown yet whether the victim is going to make a complaint," he said.

"Police are yet to speak to him in detail."
