Police charge man, 60, over Coast stabbing
A man will face court after allegedly stabbing another man during a domestic disturbance at a Cootharaba home.
Police allege an argument occurred between a 41-year-old man and a 60-year-old man just after 12am on Thursday last week.
Officers said the men were known to each other.
It is further alleged that during the argument, the 60-year-old man armed himself with a knife and assaulted the 41-year-old man, causing a significant wound to his stomach.
The 41-year-old man managed to leave the scene in a ute before being located by emergency services a short distance away.
He was taken to Sunshine Coast University Hospital with critical injuries.
The man is currently in a stable condition.
A 27-year-old woman known to the men was also found at the residence with serious facial injuries and a non-life-threatening wound to her back.
She was taken to hospital and has since been discharged.
Police said investigations were ongoing into how her injuries were sustained.
A 60-year-old Cootharaba man was arrested on Monday night and charged with acts intended to maim.
He is due to appear in Maroochydore Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
