Police investigating wounding at Nambour

Police are appealing for witnesses after a 16-year-old boy sustained a stab wound in Nambour last night.

Preliminary information suggests the local boy was walking through a park on Matthew Street when he became involved in a physical altercation with another male around 6.40pm.

The boy sustained a stab wound to his back during the scuffle and it is believed the male person then fled the scene in a white car.

Police located the injured boy on Howard Street a short time later. He was transported to Nambour Hospital with a non-life-threatening injury.

Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident or been in the vicinity of the park between 6.40 and 7pm to come forward.
