Stabbing leads to search
POLICE are searching for a 25-year-old man in relation to a stabbing in Alice Springs.
Southern Drug Investigation Unit officers believe Nicholas Munnich, described as indigenous in appearance, muscular and 155cm tall, can assist their inquiries after it is alleged a dispute broke out between a 30-year-old man and an unknown man after 6.50pm on Tuesday.
The 30-year-old man received a serious gash to his neck after the other man pulled out a knife and stabbed him in the neck before fleeing. The victim is in a stable condition in Alice Springs Hospital. A CONVICTED drug dealer has been appointed NT Thunder Academy Coach.
AFLNT announced the appointment of Jason Roe yesterday. AFLNT Manager of Talent and Pathways Wally Gallio said “Jason’s strengths are his ability to build strong relationships, he has good communication skills and can read people well”.
In 2015, Roe was given an 18-month suspended prison sentence. He faced a maximum 14 years behind bars when he pleaded guilty to one count of supplying a total 756g of cannabis — a commercial quantity — to another person. Justice Stephen Southwood told the former Brisbane Lions player, who also mentored young indigenous sportsmen and was involved in the Territory’s Clontarf education program, that his “conduct was far more serious than a stupid mistake”. “For most Aboriginal people in the NT football means hope and pride, it’s a powerful social agent that provides a vehicle for achievement for many disadvantaged young men,” he said. “By choosing to hold yourself up as a role model ... you have let a lot of people down.”
