Police lay charges after four people treated for stab wounds at Goulburn

A man has now been charged after multiple people were allegedly stabbed in Goulburn overnight.

About 9.15pm (Friday 15 November 2019), emergency services were called to Cowper Street, where, on arrival, they found two men with stab wounds.

A 57-year-old was suffering a stab wound to his abdomen, and a 29-year-old suffered lacerations to his head. Both were taken to Goulburn Hospital.

A short distance away in a villa complex, police located another a 17-year-old boy and a 33-year-old man, who had both been stabbed.

The teenager suffered a stab wound to his upper body and was taken to Canberra Hospital in a stable condition.

The older man suffered stab wounds to his head and abdomen and was taken to Canberra Hospital in a serious condition.

Officers from The Hume Police District commenced an investigation and, during the examination of the crime scene, seized a hunting knife to undergo forensic examination.

A 37-year-old woman was arrested but has since been release pending further inquiries.

Following further inquiries, the 29-year-old man was taken to Goulburn Police Station, where he was charged with two counts of reckless wounding, wound person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, and resist or hinder police officer in the execution of duty.

Police will allege in court that the man attempted to escape custody when he was brought to the police station.

He was refused bail to appear at Goulburn Local Court tomorrow (Sunday 17 November 2019).

Investigations into the circumstances surrounding the incident are continuing.
