A 23-year-old man will face the ACT Magistrates court on Thursday charged with attempted murder.

The man was arrested on Wednesday and is now the second person to be charged in relation to the incident.

It comes after a 33-year-old Richardson man was arrested in Tasmania last week and extradited to the ACT for the same crime.

It’s alleged the pair were involved in the stabbing of a 23-year-old man in Gowire on 1 October 2020.

The victim managed to flee the scene and run to a nearby service station where authorities were alerted.

Following lengthy investigations, the 23-year-old man who was arrested has been charged with attempted murder and aggravated robbery and will now face court where police will oppose bail.
