Teen charged for alleged stabbing after week-long search
A SUNSHINE Coast teenager has been charged with a string of offences after a man was allegedly stabbed and robbed in Kiamba earlier this month.
Sunshine Coast detectives have located the 17-year-old who was wanted in relation to an incident involving the alleged stabbing and armed robbery of a man in Kiamba on Monday, May 18.
Police arrested and charged a 25-year-old Bellmere woman in relation to the incident, but the teen was not located until the morning of Saturday, May 30.
Police located the teenager at an address in Acacia Ridge Saturday morning.
Police believe he was being harboured by others.
The teenager was charged with deprivation of liberty, acts intended to maim, wounding, robbery in company while armed, assault occasioning bodily harm while armed and unlawful possession of a weapon, driving a motor vehicle without a driver's licence and possessing dangerous drugs.
The teen is due to appear in court in Brisbane Children's Court next month.
This comes after a 41-year-old man entered a black BMW 320i occupied by a man and woman known to him on Monday, May 18 in Kiamba.
Shortly afterwards the three got out of the vehicle on Upper Hutton Rd in Kiamba, and the driver threatened the man, pointing a gun at him.
A short scuffle ensued, before the firearm went off and the driver stabbed the man in the left arm with a knife.
The pair stole the man's phone, watch and other personal items before they fled in the BMW.
