A WOMAN was stabbed in the chest and hand in a hor­rific do­mes­tic vi­o­lence at­tack at a Heat­ley home.

Po­lice will al­lege a Palm Is­land man, 23, stabbed the 22year- old fe­male twice fol­low­ing an ar­gu­ment be­fore flee­ing the Eck­hoff St home about 1.30am yes­ter­day.

It is un­der­stood the man was ar­rested at an­other home a short dis­tance away and has been charged with do­mes­tic vi­o­lence of­fences and un­law­ful wound­ing.

Plain Clothes Se­nior Con­sta­ble David Stan­bor­ough said when they ar­rived at the home they saw a lot of blood.

“At 2.15am we at­tended an ad­dress in Heat­ley in re­la­tion to a fe­male who had re­ceived two stab wounds to the body. On ar­rival we saw a lot of blood in the house and the victim has been trans­ported to the hos­pi­tal,” Sen Con­sta­ble Stan­bor­ough said.

“The of­fender was lo­cated a short time later at an­other ad­dress in Heat­ley and he was ar­rested for un­law­ful wound­ing and has been re­manded in cus­tody.”

The woman has since been re­leased from hos­pi­tal and is re­cov­er­ing from her in­juries.

The al­leged of­fender will front Townsville Mag­is­trates Court this morn­ing.
