Child protection detectives have scoured two crime scenes after a teenage boy was fatally stabbed at a park in Brisbane’s CBD on Thursday night.
The 16-year-old was allegedly confronted by a man known to him at Emma Miller Place off Roma Street about 8pm, a police spokeswoman said.
After staggering about 200 meters towards King George Square with the wound to his stomach, the teen collapsed and was later found by police.
The alleged offender was seen running towards the nearby Roma Street Parklands, with police patrols unable to locate him.
The teen was treated by paramedics at the scene before being rushed to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, where he later died.
Remnants of police tape and blood remained on the walkway between Ann and Turbot Streets, near the Albert Street Uniting Church, on Friday morning.
Anyone who witnessed or may have any information about the incident is urged to contact police. A further update is expected to come later in the morning.
