Police still on the hunt for Mungindi face stabber

DETECTIVES are still trying to locate a man who stabbed a stockman in the face in a violent daylight attack in Mungindi.

The attack happened about a month ago on June 14, when a 30-year-old stockman was mustering cattle on Noondoo Mungindi Rd.

He spotted a man attempting to remove a 'cattle ahead sign'.

The two men engaged in a verbal altercation which escalated into a physical confrontation during which the stockman was slashed in the cheek and the forearm with a knife the man had retrieved from his nearby ute.

The stockman drove himself to Munginidi Hospital after the attack.

Detectives from St George Criminal Investigaiton Branch released an image to assist their search.

The man is described as 185cm tall, skinny build, mid-length sandy blonde hair and was wearing a red flanny and blue jeans.

A Queensland Police Service spokesman said police have received several pieces of information from the public, but nothing substantial to assist their investigation.

"Investigators are stilll following up the matter," he said.
