A HAMILTON man is expected to be charged in relation to a stabbing incident in Hamilton on Friday night.
A 32 year-old male has been interviewed by police in relation to recklessly causing injury to a 50 year-old Hamilton male.
The incident occurred about 9pm on Friday in Haig St, Hamilton.
Sergeant Graeme Arthur, of Hamilton, said police were continuing their inquiries into the incident.
A spokesperson for Hamilton Base Hospital said yesterday the victim remained an “inpatient (in HBH) in a satisfactory condition”.
Meanwhile, police have interviewed two males following an alleged assault in Hamilton on Friday afternoon.
Sgt Arthur said two males, a 19 year-old and 16 year-old, allegedly assaulted a male outside the Gallery Corner shop in Gray St, about 1.30pm on Friday.
The two males have been questioned in relation to unlawful assault, assault in company and damaging furniture belonging to the Gallery Corner shop.
Sgt Arthur said the males would be summonsed to appear in Hamilton Magistrates’ Court at a later date.
Hamilton police were also kept occupied on Friday afternoon after a counterfeit $10 was handed in at a Gray St business, Karesh.
Sgt Arthur said police were wanting to speak with a 17 or 18 year-old female who passed the note at Karesh.
Police also attended a two car collision on the corner of Tyers St and Bree Rd on Friday about 5.50pm.
Sgt Arthur said a vehicle travelling along Tyers St failed to give way to a vehicle travelling along Bree Rd.
One vehicle was towed away while the other vehicle suffered minimal damage.
A 36 year-old woman was issued with a penalty notice for failing to give way at a roundabout.
No-one was injured in the incident.
Also on Friday, a 46 year-old woman was struck by a vehicle in Hamilton’s Safeway carpark.
Sgt Arthur said the woman was transported to Hamilton Base Hospital for treatment to minor injuries and later discharged.
No charges will be laid over the incident.
Safeway carpark was the scene for another incident on Saturday afternoon requiring police and CFA personnel to attend.
Police issued a default notice to a stationary Commodore sedan.
Sand was placed around the vehicle as a precautionary measure due to a fuel spillage.
