‘Funny look’ allegedly sparked stabbing of stranger outside coast shopping centre

It’s been revealed that a funny look is what sparked the stabbing of a stranger outside a shopping centre in Mudgeeraba last week.

According to Newscorp, a homeless man stabbed another man who he did not know three times because he “has taken offence to how he looked at him”.

The stabbing happened at the back of a centre on Swan Lane just before 3.00pm on Friday.


The victim was rushed to the Gold Coast University Hospital for treatment, while two crime scenes were established.

The court heard on Monday that the alleged 31-year-old attacker was already out on bail at the time of the offence.

He was denied bail, with the case due to return to court next month.
