Man stabbed in the leg by knife-throwing teens

TWO teenage boys allegedly hurled knives at a man, stabbing him in the leg during a street disturbance in Hervey Bay on the weekend.

The 34-year-old victim received a cut to the leg when he was struck by one of the knives being thrown by the two boys, aged 15 and 16, police said.

The alleged incident occurred outside a house on King St, Urangan, about 3pm on Sunday.

The teenagers have both been charged with assault occasioning bodily harm while armed and in company, plus going armed to cause fear.

A Queensland Police Service spokeswoman said she had limited details on the attack, only that police had been called to a disturbance outside a house on King St.

She said the two juveniles threw knives and one had struck a 34-year-old man in the leg, causing a minor cut.

It is not known whether the wound required medical attention.

The spokeswoman said the teenagers left the scene but were later located by police.

They will be dealt with under the Youth Justice Act.
