A LANGWARRIN man was among six people allegedly stabbed at a party in the Melbourne CBD in the early hours of 8 March.
The 19-year-old Langwarrin man sustained non-life-threatening stab wounds while at an address in Spencer Street, police say.
A 19-year-old Dandenong North man was also taken to hospital with critical injuries after the incident. The Langwarrin man and a 20-year-old Berwick man later checked into hospital just before 4am.
Three more teenagers presented at hospital in Werribee for treatment on non-life-threatening injuries.
On 12 March, eight people were arrested in relation to the alleged stabbings. Seven men aged between 18 and 20 were arrested, as well as a 16-year-old boy. The arrested people hailed from Langwarrin, Dandenong North, Cranbourne, Clyde North, Dandenong , Doveton, and Pakenham.
Victoria Police crime command commander Mick Frewen said the arrests “are a great result and highlight to the community that we will do everything we can to hold those involved in violent incidents of this nature to account.”
“We understand there is immense public concern when an incident like this occurs, especially in the CBD area that many people travel to regularly and expect to be safe in. However today’s arrests highlight the determination of both the Gang Crime Squad and regional police to ensure those involved are arrested and ultimately put before the court. It should also send a strong message that violent offending of this nature will not be tolerated.”
