Qld Woman Stabbed While Taking Out Rubbish Bin
A woman has been stabbed repeatedly while taking out her rubbish bin in Townsville.
A man with a knife attacked the 35-year-old outside her Pimlico home on Wednesday night, leaving her with extensive wounds to her chest and arms.
The woman remains in hospital in a serious condition. The alleged assailant was arrested in a park a short time after the attack, which happened just before 9.30pm.
Police say the pair do not know each other and the attack appears to be random.
The alleged offender has been charged with acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm and is due to face Townsville Magistrates Court on Thursday.
