A man has been hospital with life-threatening injuries after he was stabbed at Woodridge last night (Saturday, August 18), Queensland Police say.
Preliminary information indicates the man was walking north along Ewing Road with three other people shortly after 11pm when they passed three men and two children walking in the opposite direction.
A verbal altercation occurred during which time the 37-year-old man was stabbed once in the neck with what was possibly a knife or a bladed weapon.
The three men and two children then fled the scene on foot.
The man was treated at the scene before being transported to hospital in a critical condition.
Multiple police units, including uniform and plain clothes officers, the dog squad and Polair2 saturated the area searching for the men, however they were not located.
A crime scene has been declared at the incident location as Scientific and Scenes of Crimes officers process the scene, and an Incident Centre has been established at Logan Police Station.
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has any CCTV or dash cam video along Ewing Drive at around 11pm is urged to contact police.
