Manhunt for Brisbane school stab accused
Police are hunting for a wanted criminal they believe stabbed a security guard at an elite Brisbane girls' school.
Khia Gribben is alleged to have stabbed the guard at Somerville House in South Brisbane just before 5.30am on Wednesday.
The 51-year-old guard was stabbed five times in the torso and arms and was rushed to Princess Alexandra Hospital, where he underwent surgery and remains in a stable condition.
It's believed Gribben took a train to Albion station, where he got into a taxi, with police releasing CCTV and images of the 25-year-old carrying a backpack and a green plastic rubbish bin.
He was last seen getting out of the taxi at nearby Lutwyche City shopping centre about 40 minutes after the attack.
Gribben, who has links to Brisbane's northern suburbs and the Sunshine Coast, was already wanted by police prior to Wednesday's incident.
Two warrants were issued for his arrest after he failed to appear at Caloundra Magistrates Court on August 16 over a single count of entering premises and commit an indictable offence charge and another of failing to dispose of syringes.
Police are urging anyone with information to come forward or for Gribben's friends to encourage him to hand himself in.
