Teenagers in hospital after knife brawls

aug 07

SEVEN men have suffered knife wounds in two separate late-night attacks.

Four were taken to hospital after being stabbed and slashed in a gang-style confrontation in Auburn on Friday.

The clash began after a robbery outside a restaurant in Park Street, which carried over to an apartment block in nearby Queen Street. A 19-year-old suffered a gash to his knee, a second was stabbed in the abdomen, an 18-year-old had a laceration to his ribs and a 17-year-old was slashed across the buttock.

In the second attack, three men were hospitalised with knife wounds after an argument early yesterday at St Andrews.

Three hurt in gang attacks

“Three people last night were stabbed in attacks by members of 15-strong gang in a suburb where police were carrying out an operation on armed robberies. A teenager was robbed at knifepoint and stabbed in the stomach outside a restaurant in Park rd. Auburn about 9pm.

About 45 minutes later ambulances went to an apartment in nearby Queen st. where two people were stabbed.”
