The head of a Queensland-based domestic violence support service has urged women being abused to “immediately” seek safety after a Brisbane woman was stabbed by her partner.
A 46-year-old man entered a Forest Lake home about 3.30am on Monday, where he proceeded to repeatedly stab his 37-year-old partner. She reportedly suffered stab wounds to her neck, back and head.
Her 18-year-old son was also stabbed when he tried to stop the attack. He is receiving treatment for wounds to his arm and hands, Brisbane Times reports.
The man fled but died a short time later after his car slammed at speed into the back of a parked semi-trailer at nearby Wacol.
