MAJOR UPDATE:

Police wish to speak with a 26-year-old man who may be able to assist them with their investigations into an incident at a caravan park last night.

The man (pictured below) may be able to provide further information about an unlawful wounding that occurred in Benaraby about 1.10am this morning.

The man is described as Caucasian with a heavy build, approximately 175cm tall, blue eyes and brown hair.

Police are urging members of the public to not approach this man if they see him and to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

UPDATE midday:

GLADSTONE police confirmed the man responsible for the stabbing at Benaraby this morning is still on the loose.

Police will release information about the alleged offender's identity this afternoon.

The victim is currently assisting police with their investigations. 

UPDATE 10.07am: 

A NEIGHBOUR at the Boyne River Tourist Park who heard an argument between two men at 1am said he was surprised to hear that someone was stabbed.

"I keep to myself around here but I was woken up around 1am when I heard shouting," he said.

"I didn't think it was much so I just went back to bed.

"It's surprising because it's usually really quiet around here," he said.

He believed the men had been drinking prior to the argument.

Another resident at the caravan park said she saw the flashing lights of a police car at 1.15am.

"I saw the lights but couldn't hear anything because I had my headphones in," she said.

"I think only one of the men lived here."

The man who was stabbed was released from hospital this morning but was not home between 8.30-9.15am.

Workers at the Caltex service station on the Bruce Hwy in Benaraby said they were closed at the time the man called for help.

"Police looked through the CCTV and we couldn't see anything," a worker said.

 

EARLIER 7.36am:

A FIGHT at Benaraby in the early hours of this morning left a man with a stab wound to the back.

Initial investigations indicate that around 1.10am the men fought at a caravan park on the Bruce Highway.  

During this time one of the men, believed to be aged in his 30s, sustained a stab wound to his back.

The man drove himself to a nearby service station to call for help.

He was then transported to the Gladstone Base Hospital and later released.

The incident came just two hours before a fatal stabbing in South Gladstone.

Investigations are continuing.
