Man facing charges over Bundaberg stabbing

A 35-year-old man is expected to face Bundaberg Magistrates Court today over an alleged stabbing yesterday afternoon.

The Bundaberg West man was arrested by police about 8.45pm last night after a search and has been charged with one count each of entering a dwelling with intent while armed and acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm.

He remained in custody overnight.

Police allege he armed himself with a knife, entered a house and attacked a 49-year-old man.

Yesterday emergency services were called to a Barolin Street address at Walkervale about 4.30pm after reports of a stabbing.

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman said last night that a male in his 40s was treated by a critical care paramedic for a "penetrating wound to the lower abdomen" and taken to hospital in a stable condition.
