Hospital staff want to park for free while they work

It seems that Lismore Base isn’t the only hospital whose workers would like to park their cars for free while they work.

Police say an investigation is underway after a man was stabbed with a glass bottle and another man was struck with a metal pole during a fight with a group of teenagers near Lismore.

Police have been told a 38-year-old man was at a home with family and friends on Churchwood Place, Goonellabah, when rocks were thrown at the house about 10pm last Friday.

The man, a 16-year-old boy and a 19-year-old man, walked outside to investigate and were confronted on nearby Allington Place by a group of males, before a fight broke out.

During the fight, the older man was stabbed with a glass bottle and the 19-year-old man was struck a number of times with a metal pole, before the group fled the scene. The 16-year-old was uninjured.

Officers from Richmond Police District established a crime scene and searched the area.

NSW Ambulance paramedics treated the men at the scene, before they were both taken to Lismore Base Hospital in a stable condition.

The older man remains in hospital and will undergo surgery and the younger man has since been released.

As part of investigations, police are appealing for anyone with information about the incident to contact Lismore Police on (02) 6626 0599.
