Man charged after woman stabbed multiple times

DETECTIVES have charged a 24-year-old Beenleigh man with attempted murder following investigations into an alleged disturbance at a Beenleigh residence last night during which time a woman sustained multiple stab wounds.

Police were called to a Chapman Drive residence around 10pm where they located a 21-year-old Beenleigh woman lying in the front yard with apparent stab wounds to the abdomen, arm and chest.

The woman was transported to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital in a serious condition.

A man was arrested at the scene following a violent struggle with police during which time a taser was deployed, however it had little effect, and the man was eventually taken into custody after officers managed to apply handcuffs.

Two officers sustained grazing and bruising during the struggle.

The man has been remanded in police custody overnight and is due to appear in the Beenleigh Magistrates Court this morning where he also faces a charge of assault police and assaulting a public officer performing an official function.

The pair were known to each other.

Anyone with information which could assist with this matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or 24hrs a day.
