Just before 1:45AM today, 29 July, police and other emergency services were dispatched by the 9-1-1 Communications Centre to a report that two men had been engaged in a dispute at Vic’s Bar located off North Sound Road, which led to one of the men being seriously injured.
On the arrival of the police, both parties involved had left the location. The injured man attended the hospital for treatment for life-threatening injuries. He remains in hospital in critical condition.
Following the incident on North Sound Road, at about 2:34AM police and other emergency services were dispatched to a church located on Frank Sound Road, where it appeared that the driver of a red Kia Picante had lost control and collided with columns in front of the church and the vehicle stopped on top of the column. The driver received injuries and first aid was rendered by members of the public prior to the arrival of emergency personnel. He was transported to the hospital where he was treated for serious but non-life-threatening-injuries.
Officers had reasonable cause to believe that the man who was involved in the collision on Frank Sound, a 24-year-old from North Side, was involved in the stabbing incident at the bar on North Sound Road and he was arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent. He was also warned for intended prosecution for several traffic offenses including DUI and driving whilst disqualified.
