Po­lice are ask­ing res­i­dents on Great North Rd, Avon­dale, to check prop­er­ties for a weapon used to stab a woman on Sun­day.

A 36-year-old man has been ar­rested in re­la­tion to the in­ci­dent where a 23-year-old woman was stabbed in the neck, chest and back.

The weapon is be­lieved to be a kitchen knife with a black han­dle, but de­tec­tive sergeant Glenn Bald­win says po­lice are in­ter­est- ed in any for­eign ob­jects found. The area of in­ter­est is be­tween Sal­taire and Beatrix streets but may be wider.

Peo­ple should not touch any weapons they find. Con­tact the po­lice on 307-6789.
