Man stabbed at Christchurch petrol station
A man has been taken to hospital after a stranger stabbed him twice at a petrol station in Christchurch.
The man and a woman entered the BP service station, at the intersection of Edgeware Rd and Cranford St, about 6.30am on Sunday.
Police said two men entered the station a short time later and walked to the seating area.
As the man and woman left the building, one of the men in the seating area made an offensive gesture towards them.
The man and woman kept walking, but the man returned shortly after with another associate.
He was then approached by one of the men in the seating area, and stabbed twice with a small knife.
The 27-year-old was taken to Christchurch Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
A police spokeswoman said she understood the injured man remained in hospital on Sunday afternoon.
The offender, who was not known to the victim, was initially wearing a black top and black pants but later put on a red T-shirt with ITALIA on the back.
No comment from our virtue signalling PM yet. I won’t hold my breath in wait for her to say sorry.
