Attackers stab man, break his ribs

A MAN in his 50s was stabbed to the head with a knife, then suffered broken ribs when a group of people bashed him as he tried to flee from his attacker on Sunday night.

The assault took place at a Rockhampton hostel on Denison St between 10.30pm and midnight.

Police yesterday said one person had been charged in relation to the attack, while they warned they would be relentless in their pursuit of the others involved.

A woman will appear in Rockhampton Magistrates Court on Friday, March 30, charged with assault occasioning bodily harm while armed and in company, entering a dwelling with intent, and with robbery in company.

Police are still searching for the principal attacker, a woman, and a number of others involved.

"We have formulated a team of four investigators dedicated to this matter," CIB officer-in-charge Detective Senior Sergeant Scott Moon said.

"This was a terrible situation ... the victim has been attacked by knife and suffered a deep cut to his face.

"The behaviour involved was disgraceful and we will be relentless.

"We are currently investigating the whereabouts of key people of interest."

He said it was not clear why the attack occurred.

The attack was captured on CCTV.

The female attacker had lunged at the victim several times with the knife.

He was then hit and kicked a number of times as he attempted to escape the main attacker.
