What the …?
Last night around 6.30pm another altercation, another stabbing, another one in hospital. A 43-year-old man is in serious condition after being stabbed three times during an altercation on Graham St near High St. Come on police lets call it just another incident. Can happen, nothing to worry about. Not like everyone gets stabbed or beaten up in the Dunedin CBD. Police have not given more information, but the culprit it still on the loose.
Update: Monday police arrested 53-year-old Michael Joseph Anthony Carroll for the assault on Sunday. He returned to the boarding house in front of where the stabbing happened and was arrested. Judge Stephen Coyle remanded him in custody without plea until August 16. The victim has received surgery but is still in serious condition.
