Officers have been told about 9.30pm on Saturday a 39-year-old man was at home in Gasmatta Crescent when two or three men arrived with a 23-year-old woman.

They argued before he was stabbed in the chest.  His attackers then left.


The stabbing victim left his home and was walking along Luxford Road when the 23-year-old woman approached him and allegedly tackled him.
