Stabbing At Noble Park Grand Final Party

October 13th, 2016

A party guest was stabbed in the chest, stomach and leg in an unprovoked attack outside a Grand Final weekend gathering in Melbourne’s southeast.

The victim, 24 from Berwick, fell to the ground while he and his friend were trying to run away from the attackers after being threatened on a Noble Park street.

The offenders surrounded the man and began assaulting him before one of them repeatedly stabbed the man.

A number of people tried to shield the bleeding man to stop the attack, and the offenders ran down Mons Parade before fleeing in a Holden Commodore.

The victim was taken to Dandenong Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Greater Dandenong Crime Investigation Unit detectives have released CCTV footage as they continue their probe into the attack which occurred on Saturday 1 October.

The two offenders are described as being African in appearance and aged in their early 20s.

Victoria Police spokeswoman Amelia Penhall said investigators were told the victim and four of his friends arrived at a party on Ian Street 4am.

“The victim and one friend then walked to another car on Robert St a short distance from the party,” Ms Penhall said.
“While at the car, the victim has seen a dark-coloured Holden Commodore sedan, possibly an early 2000s model, drive up and park next to them.

“They have then walked back towards the party on Ian St.

“As they were walking along Mons Parade the pair heard a person yelling from behind them.

“They have turned and saw the driver and front passenger from the Holden Commodore.”

One man was armed with a knife and the two offenders threatened the victim and his friend.

“They tried to reason with the offenders before they began running back towards the party,” Ms Penhall said.

“The victim tripped and fell and the two offenders assaulted him.”

Police are keen to speak to potential witnesses, particularly two men who had a conversation with the driver of the Holden Commodore shortly after the stabbing.

They would also like to speak to the occupants of a light-coloured SUV who drove along Ian St at the time of the incident.

Police have released images and CCTV of men they believe may be able to assist with their inquiries, as well as two vehicles they are trying to identify.

Anyone with information or who witnessed the incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
