Aggravated assault – Alice Springs

Northern Territory Police are seeking information to the whereabouts of a man they believe may be able to assist with their investigation into an aggravated assault in Alice Springs on Tuesday night.

It is alleged around 6:50pm a 30-year-old man was sitting with a group of people at a hotel on Barrett Drive when he was approached by an unknown man. A dispute broke out between the pair and it is further alleged one man grabbed a knife and stabbed the other man in the neck before fleeing the area, Northern Territory Police say.

The 30-year-old man received a serious gash to his neck and was taken to the Alice Springs Hospital where he remains in a stable condition.
