A VICTORIAN man was chased by a group of up to six Asian men and stabbed several times early this morning in the western suburbs.
The man in his 20s was chased along Hanson Rd by the group and into Alison St where he was stabbed numerous times.
The man “received severe lacerations to his hands, arms and body and is in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital undergoing emergency surgery,” police spokesman Senior Constable Mick Abbott said.
It was the second stabbing in the city overnight, with another man stabbed and robbed by a woman in the northern suburbs.
