A 49-year old man has been charged after a 48-year old man was found with multiple stab wounds in a popular Byron Bay park at just before midday yesterday (Sunday April 10).

Police and paramedics were called to the scene of the stabbing at 11.45am, at the Somerset Street end of Butler Street Reserve.

According to paramedics who also attended the scene, the victim was covered in so much blood it was impossible to count the sounds to his chest and legs.

A week earlier the reserve would have been bustling with people at its regular monthly market.

The patient was taken to Byron Bay Hospital and later airlifted to the Gold Coast Hospital by the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter in a critical condition.

A 48-year-old man was arrested a short time later and taken to Byron Bay Police Station.

He’s since been charged with wound with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and was refused bail to appear before Tweed Heads Local Court today (Monday 11 April 2016).
