An 18-year-old Devonshire woman was admitted to a general ward at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital after she was stabbed at the Rum Bum Beach Bar at Horseshoe Bay early this morning, following “a dispute with another young woman”.

Police say the incident occurred around 12:30am Sunday (August 25).

A spokesman said: “Apparently the 18-year-old woman then exited the establishment – which was in the process of closing – and stood near the bathrooms and outdoor showers with a group of people when she was stabbed multiple times, seemingly by an unknown young woman.

The injured teen was transported to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital on a private motorcycle and admitted to a general ward for treatment of non-life threatening stab wounds to her body as well as her arms.

Another individual that was understood to be present during the incident, said to be an 18 year old Devonshire man, was transported via ambulance to hospital for treatment of a laceration to his arm.

“His injury is also non-life threatening, but the circumstances regarding how he was hurt remain unclear at this time. The scene has been processed and inquiries continue,” he said.

“Any witnesses or members of the public with relevant information are encouraged to call the Criminal Investigation Department on 247-1744 as soon as possible.
