Man stabbed with garden scissors while trying to stop motorist fleeing crash

A man has been horrifically stabbed with a pair of garden secateurs while attempting to stop another man from fleeing the scene of a crash at Geebung overnight.

Police said that around 7.00pm, two drivers were involved in an altercation which resulted in the two cars coming into contact with each other.

Both cars then turned into the same street, with one of the vehicles crashing into a light pole. The other car drove off from the scene.


The man tried to run from his car after crashing it into the pole, however he was confronted by a 57-year-old man who tried to stop him.

The 20-year-old produced a pair of garden secateurs and stabbed the older man several times in the  neck, hip and stomach.

Two witnesses ran to the man’s aid and restrained his attacker until police arrived.

He was then rushed to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital.

The 20-year-old man was arrested and charged with one count of unlawful wounding. He is due to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on November 28.
