Teenagers injured in Lismore fight

TWO teenagers were injured in Lismore on Saturday night during a violent fight.

About 9pm, a fight erupted between an 18-year-old man and a 17-year-old youth in McLennan Lane.

As a result the 18-year-old suffered stab wounds to his abdomen.

He fled the scene to Bridge St in North Lismore, where paramedics were called.

Despite his injuries, the victim tried to evade treatment and initially fled from paramedics.

They eventually found the teen in the laneway behind the Northern Rivers Hotel.

NSW Ambulance Brunswick Valley Zone district manager Inspector Greg Powell said the victim sustained several stab wounds, one to his chest, reportedly from a 10cm blade.

He was transported to Lismore Base Hospital in a stable condition.

Police said the 17-year-old male also had injuries to his face and back, which were “scratch wounds” similar to some on the other teen.

The Northern Star could not confirm whether he was transported to hospital.

Exact details of the incident were scarce as police said there were conflicting versions of the event supplied.

Police said the teens “may have been associates.”

Businesses on McLennan Lane told The Northern Star yesterday they knew nothing about the stabbing.

Anyone with information concerning the incident is urged to contact Lismore police on 6626 0599.
