Man dies in hospital after Woodridge stabbing

A MAN who was stabbed in the neck during an ‘altercation’ with a group of men at Woodridge over the weekend has sadly died in hospital.

Police confirmed the 37-year-old passed away overnight, three days after the alleged attack.

It’s understood the man was walking along Ewing Road with three other people around 11pm on Saturday, when they became involved in a fight with a group of three men who had two children believed to be under the age of 10 with them.

“During the altercations, the victim was stabbed in the neck,” Qld Police said in a statement.

“He was transported to Princess Alexandra Hospital in a critical condition, where he died overnight.”

An investigation centre has since been set up at Logan Central Police Station involving numerous resources including the Logan Criminal Investigation Branch, Logan Child Protection Unit, Homicide Investigation Unit and Scenes of Crime Unit.

Investigators are wanting to speak to a group of three men aged between approximately 20 and 40-years-of-age and two young children who it is believed can assist with inquiries.

Police say the group was distinctive, with one man playing loud music and another man wearing an orange, high-visibility jacket (similar to the one pictured).
