Teen accused of stabbing ordered out of Gladstone

A TEENAGER charged with the stabbing of two brothers at a weekend party in Telina has been granted bail on condition that he live away from Gladstone.

A Non-Publication Order was made by Magistrate Mark Morrow not to publish any details that would identify the youth.

During a bail application before the Children's Court, police prosecutor Sgt Barry Stevens said one man suffered six stab wounds and his brother one stab wound.

"He (accused) denies using a knife to stab anyone," Sgt Stevens said.

"However a witness says he was seen (earlier) with one... and seen to swing a knife."

Sgt Stevens alleged police had been told the teen had a flick knife and a hunting knife "to protect himself" because of ongoing issues.

The sergeant also expressed concern that the accused may face retribution.

The case was adjourned to a date in July.

Both the injured men were flown to Rockhampton Hospital for medical treatment.
