Teens charged after woman stabbed in back at Beerwah

FOUR teenagers have been charged with unlawful wounding after a woman was assaulted at Beerwah last night.

It will be alleged that four people, three males and one female, entered an Old Gympie Road residence about 8.30pm and confronted a 17-year-old woman who was visiting the house.

An altercation allegedly ensued, during which  the 17-year-old sustained two stab wounds to her back before the group fled in a car.

The woman was transported to Nambour Base Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Police arrested the teenagers after the car they were travelling in rolled on Pikes Road, Glasshouse Mountain a short time later.

The Sunshine Coast teenagers, a 16-year-old girl and boy, and two 17-year-old men, have also been charged with entering a dwelling with intent and committing an indictable offence while armed with a dangerous weapon.

The 17-year-olds are due to appear in the Maroocyhdore Magistrates Court this morning, and the 16-year-olds will be dealt with under the provisions of the Youth Justices Act.

It is believed all five were known to each other prior to the incident.
