Stabbings, punch over noisy party


THREE teenagers were treated for stab wounds and a woman knocked unconscious early Sunday morning during a confrontation over a noisy party in Cool Store Rd, Hastings.

The woman was treated at the scene by ambulance officers while a 19-year-old man from Bittern and two 16 and 17 year old youths from Hastings took themselves to Frankston hospital.

Police have been told that up to 20 people gathered in nearby Gold Court late Saturday night as a resident was seeing his wife off to her night shift job.

He told them off about loud noise from the party, saying his young children were inside trying to sleep.

Words were exchanged and threats made between the man and the trio from the party.

The man’s wife returned about 11.50pm as things turned ugly, with windows on their car and bedroom being smashed.

The man called for police and came into the street allegedly armed with knives, for which police say he has a permit.

Detective Senior Sergeant Nick Vallas said the woman and her husband confronted the youths and, in the resulting affray, the woman was allegedly knocked unconscious after being punched in the face.

An ambulance attended and the woman was treated for swelling to her jaw.

The youths, allegedly stabbed by the man, took themselves to Frankston hospital where on Sunday they made statements to police.

Detective Vallas said no charges had been laid over the incidents “at this stage” as police piece together the events of the night.

“All may be culpable, but when we have different people making claims we have to investigate them all.”
