Six teens stabbed at party
An injured man, 34, is under police guard in hospital after he allegedly went on a stabbing spree at a party in a Sydney park that left six teenagers with knife wounds.
Police were called to a park on Gilroy Road in Turramurra at 11.40 pm on Saturday, where they found the man with head and upper body injuries along with six teenagers — aged between 15 and 19 — with varying stab wounds.
Among them is a Mt Kuring-Gai boy, 17, who had surgery at Royal North Shore Hospital for stab wounds to his throat, chest and abdomen.
A girl, 16, went into surgery in the same hospital for wounds to her neck and arm.
The victims are from surrounding suburbs including Berowra, Hornsby and Mt Colah. They were all expected to survive, police said in a statement.
Detectives have been told the older man stabbed the teens during a fight.
A police spokeswoman said it was still unclear if the stabbing began before or after the man was assaulted.
He was not a member of their group.
He remains under guard at Westmead Hospital, where he is being treated for his injuries.
