A teenage woman has been arrested in connection with an early-morning stabbing at Horseshoe Bay.

A police spokesman said a 19-year-old woman, believed to be from Paget, was this afternoon in custody for the attack, which left an 18-year-old woman with multiple stab wounds.

The spokesman said the injuries to the victim were not believed to be life-threatening.

Another teenager, an 18-year-old Devonshire male, suffered an arm injury in the incident, but police said the injury was “not consistent with a stab wound.”

The spokesman said: “It is believed that he fell on some rocks in the area around the time of the stabbing incident.

“The investigation continues and detectives encourage anyone who has video footage of the stabbing to come forward.

“Any information provided will be treated in the strictest of confidence.”

Police said the female victim had been involved in a dispute with another young woman at the Rum Bum Beach Bar on Saturday night.

She then left the bar when it closed, and was standing with a group of people near the bathrooms and outdoor showers at around 12.30am when she was repeatedly stabbed.

The victim was taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital by motorcycle and was admitted to a general ward for treatment of non-life-threatening stab wounds about her body and arms.

A spokesman for the Rum Bum Beach Bar said: “It has come to our attention that there was an incident at Horseshoe Bay during the early hours of Sunday morning at 12.33am.

“We were hosting a special event, an electronic dance music party, which had finished at midnight, and security guards had escorted patrons off the premises.

“Soon after, as staff members were cleaning and breaking down equipment, the police were on scene and notified us of the incident which occurred in the bathroom and parking lot area.”

The spokesman added: “After police arrived, they spoke with the on-duty manager and our security staff who allowed access to our video surveillance cameras.

“We are assisting local officials in their inquiries.”

Witnesses should call the Criminal Investigation Department on 247-1744 or Crime Stoppers anonymously on 800-8477.
