A man has been charged with an additional offence following the alleged stabbing of another man and serious injury of a woman during a domestic disturbance at a Cootharaba residence last week.
It will be alleged that just after 12am on September 17 an argument occurred between a 41-year-old man and a 60-year-old man who are known to each other.
It is further alleged that during the argument the 60-year-old man armed himself with a knife and assaulted the 41-year-old man, causing a significant wound to his stomach.
The 41-year-old man managed to leave the scene in a vehicle before being located by emergency services a short distance away.
It is then alleged the 60-year-old man turned on a 27-year-old woman known to him and struck her over the head with a glass object.
The 41-year-old man was transported to Sunshine Coast University Hospital with critical injuries. His current condition is stable.
A 27-year-old woman was transported to hospital with serious facial injuries and has since been discharged.
A 60-year-old Cootharaba man was arrested and charged with acts intended to maim and grievous bodily harm.
He is due to reappear in Maroochydore Magistrates Court today (September 23).
