A teenage girl has been taken to hospital under emergency conditions after a stabbing incident in Wynnum, about 20 kilometres from Brisbane’s CBD.
Police said officers were called to a unit complex on Emsworth Street just before 5am following reports of a disturbance.
“Upon arrival, police located a 17-year-old girl with a number of stab wounds to her face and back,” a Queensland Police Service spokeswoman said.
Paramedics, including Critical Care officers and the High Acuity Response Unit, treated the teenager, who was then taken to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in a serious condition.
A 37-year-old woman, known to the girl who was present at the scene, was assisting police with inquiries.
Investigations are continuing.
