A teenage girl has been stabbed in a random attack, police allege, with a 34-year-old woman now in custody.
The alleged stabbing took place in Bundaberg, about four hours north of Brisbane, on Monday afternoon outside a dance studio.
“It will be alleged at approximately 4.30pm, the woman approached a 15-year-old girl not known to her at business along Water St,” police said on Tuesday.
“The woman started a conversation with the girl before allegedly producing a knife and wounding the girl.
“She then left the scene on foot.”
The 15-year-old Avoca girl suffered non-life-threatening wounds to her back and paramedics took her to Bundaberg Hospital in a stable condition for further treatment.
Police located and arrested the woman in a nearby unit block.
The Bundaberg South woman is charged with one count of acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm.
She has been denied police bail and was due to appear at Bundaberg Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
