Stabbing in Napier Court

1 comment

Police are hunting a man who allegedly stabbed another male in the upstairs foyer of Napier District Court this morning.

The incident was believed to have occurred at about 11am.

A Hawke's Bay Today court reporter said at least 10 police officers were on the scene and the victim was being treated by St John Ambulance staff for cuts to his arm. Multiple blood spots could be seen on the foyer's floor.

One witness said an altercation had occurred earlier between the two men, one of which is understood to have gang connections.
