Woman charged after double stabbing
A WOMAN has been charged after allegedly stabbing two people in Surfers Paradise.
Police allege a physical alternation broke out between "a large number of people" on The Esplanade about 2.35am on Friday morning.
During the fight, it's alleged a 37-year-old woman approached a man and used a knife to stab him in his left rib cage.
It's then alleged she stabbed a second person, understood to be a 17-year-old, twice in the lungs before running from the scene.
Both men - who are in their late teens - were taken to Gold Coast University Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
The woman from Boronia Heights was found a short time later and charged with wounding and grievous bodily harm.
A Queensland Police media spokesman said the woman had also been charged with failure to comply with COVID-19 public health directions.
She will appear in Southport Magistrates court later on Friday.
