Man stabs woman in back in DV attack, police allege
A man accused of stabbing a woman in the back on Saturday night is facing a string of domestic violence charges laid by Cairns police.
Police allege the 46-year-old attacked the woman, who he knew, at an address on Workshop Road, Yarrabah, east of Cairns, about 7pm on Saturday.
The woman was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
“A 46-year-old local man left the scene and surrendered himself to police a short time later,” a police statement said.
The man was denied police bail and was due to appear in Cairns Magistrates Court on Monday.
“We all play our part in preventing domestic and family violence,” the statement said.
