Appeal For Witnesses Following Stabbing

Police want to hear from anyone who saw or has dash cam footage of a stabbing in Gympie.  

It will be alleged that around 2.45pm, a white utility was stopped at a red traffic light at the intersection of the Bruce Highway and Monkland Street when a silver hatch back pulled up following an earlier incident on Sunday.  

An altercation occurred where a 31-year-old Amarmoor man sustained serious stab wounds and remains in a critical condition.

Investigators are appealing for anyone travelling southbound along the Bruce Highway and on Monkland Street, who may have witnessed the altercation, to come forward and speak to police.

Police would like to speak to the driver of a white Pantech truck (possibly a horse transporter) that was travelling southbound on the highway at approximately 2:29pm.

The truck is seen stopping at the intersection and turning right into Monkland Street towards Southside.

Police would also like to speak to the driver of a white Pajero that turned out of a Supercheap Auto carpark, several vehicles that turn out of the Red Rooster carpark, as well as all the vehicles travelling northbound behind the two vehicles of interest.

A 26-year-old Gympie man has been charged with one count each of acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm and possession of a knife in a public place.

The man appeared in the Gympie Magistrates Court on Tuesday and has been remanded in custody to appear again in November.
