Police hunt man after alleged murder attempt

POLICE are searching for a man who allegedly tried stabbing another man to death in a frenzied roadside attack at Moreton Bay, north of Brisbane.

It allegedly happened outside a property on Lamington Road at Mango Hill last Wednesday, October 10.

Police said the victim, a 46-year-old man, was attacked after attending the property about 12.30pm.


It’s alleged a second man driving a white hatchback parked on the road and got out of his car, preventing the victim from passing in his vehicle.

“The victim exited his vehicle to speak with the man when another two vehicles pulled up behind, blocking him in as the man approached him armed with a knife,” police said in a statement.

Police said the armed man lunged at the victim “a number of times” and stabbed him in the torso.

That’s when it’s alleged the victim armed himself with a metal pole and started beating his attacker, causing him to retreat back into his hatchback and drive away.

The man drove from the scene with the other two vehicles following behind, police said.

The 46-year-old victim was taken to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital with serious but non-life-threatening stab wounds.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have seen a small white sedan or similar model in the area around the time of the incident to come forward.

It is believed the vehicle’s back windscreen may have been smashed during the incident and the vehicle could be missing a rear registration plate.

Police say they are also concerned for the health of the man driving the white hatchback due to possible injuries sustained during the incident.

Anyone with information that could assist police with their investigation is urged to come forward.
