UPDATE: Police and State Emergency Service volunteers are searching for clues in the street where a woman was fatally stabbed overnight.

Terrified residents who live in Seppelt St told The Chronicle they often heard arguments coming from the area in which a 29-year-old woman was found by police.

Toowoomba man John Henry Brown, 30, was this morning charged with the woman's murder.

One resident, who moved to the street earlier this year, said she was unsure of which house arguments were heard, but they often happened after 10pm.

"I have heard disturbances in the past coming from the area," she said, indicating towards the crime scene.

"I'm worried a little bit.

"Everyone keeps to themselves.

"I still don't know everybody."

Another resident said police were occasionally seen in the street after hearing arguments and disturbances.
