‘He said I’ll put a bullet right in your forehead’

A RESIDENT has recounted the terrifying moment he was threatened with a handgun and a 15cm knife, just before a man was stabbed in the neck in a seemingly random attack on a busy street south of Brisbane.

Steve Logaivau said he had been walking home from his uncle's house about 10.40 last night after watching a football game on TV when he was approached by a man on the street.

"He was trying to start something, he was swearing," Mr Logaivau said.

"He asked me, 'Do you have a problem brother?' and I said no, he pulled out a gun, held it up to me and said, 'If you have any problem I'll put a bullet right in your forehead.'

"He came here and tried to stab us with a knife so we ran inside."

The suspect, described as caucasian, in his 30s, with long hair and a neck tattoo, was alarmingly accompanied by two children under the age of 10, along with another man, according to Mr Logaivau.

There are still marks on a fence which Mr Logaivau said were from the man running the knife along the wood.

"I heard this girl yell 'leave him, leave him'," he said.

"I didn't want to come back outside after that, I didn't want to take the risk, I was so scared."

Police allege a 37-year-old man was stabbed in the neck less than 20m away, just before 11pm. They are still hunting the person responsible.

The street remained a crime scene this morning as detectives pieced together what had happened.

The stabbing victim was walking along a road in Woodridge with two men and a woman when they passed a group of three men and two children just before 11pm.

Police believed that during a verbal altercation the man was stabbed once in the neck.

The man was treated at the scene on Ewing Rd before being transported to Princess Alexandra Hospital in a critical condition.

Multiple police units, the dog squad and PolAir2 saturated the area searching for the men, but they were not located.

A crime scene has been declared at the location where forensic police are investigating and an incident centre has been established at Logan Police Station.

Police have urged anyone who witnessed the alleged attack or has any CCTV or dashcam video along Ewing Rd to contact police.
