West End Brisbane: Man charged over stabbing, allegedly headbutted cop



A man has been charged after allegedly headbutting a cop following an inner-city ‘argument’ with an acquaintance.

A Brisbane man has been charged with the attempted stabbing murder of an acquaintance – and assaulting police – following an argument at an inner-city home on Monday evening.

Police said two men, aged 28 and 35, who were both known to each other, were arguing at a West End home at 5pm when the younger man allegedly stabbed the other in the chest and leg.

The 35-year-old was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, while the 28-year-old was arrested and taken to Dutton Park Police Station.

Police said once at the station, the 28-year-old man allegedly became uncooperative and headbutted a police officer who sustained minor injuries.

He has been charged with attempted murder and serious assault of a police officer causing bodily harm.

He was refused police bail and is expected to face Brisbane Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
