Police appeal follows Singleton stabbing

HUNTER Valley detectives investigating the stabbing of a man in Singleton 

are appealing for public assistance over the incident.

About 3.45am Saturday a 24-year-old man and two women, aged 23 and 22, were waiting at a bus stop on Munro Street, Singleton, when they were approached by an unknown man.

The trio spoke to him before he became argumentative towards the 23-year-old man.

Police say that as this occurred a second unknown male with a knife appeared from behind the bus shelter and stabbed the 23-year-old twice in his stomach.

The two unknown males then fled. They were last seen running towards the intersection of Munro and Lesley streets.

Emergency services were called and the 23-year-old was treated by paramedics at the scene before being taken to Singleton Hospital.

He was later airlifted to John Hunter Hospital where his condition is now reported to be serious but stable.

Officers from Hunter Valley Local Area Command established a crime scene and a canvass of the area was conducted.

Detectives would now like to speak with two males who may be able to assist with their inquiries.

The first male is described as having a thin build, short dark hair, blue eyes and was clean shaven. He’s believed to be aged in his early 20s and about 165-170cm tall.

At the time, he was wearing a dark cap and blue jacket with a white stripe.

The second male is described as possessing a large build.

He was wearing knee-length shorts and a dark coloured jacket with a white motif on the back.
