1 min read

Dunedin Police have this afternoon continued to talk with witnesses and examine the scene in relation to the stabbing incident that occurred in Bay View Road, South Dunedin, last evening, resulting in the death of a 21-year-old woman.

"As a result of the call for witnesses, a number of people who saw the incident have come forward with helpful information," said Officer-in-Charge of the case, Detective Senior Sergeant Steve McGregor.

Police have set up a caravan near the address at the Kings High School end of Bay View Road. Members of the public can call into the caravan if they have information to pass on to police, or alternatively contact the Dunedin Police Station directly.

It was likely that the large team of officers working on the case would complete interviews with witnesses and the scene examination tomorrow, Detective Senior Sergeant McGregor said.

A post-mortem is being held this evening on the woman who died at the scene. Her name has not yet been released.

The 50-year-old man involved in the incident remains in a stable condition in Dunedin Hospital.

Police are not seeking anyone else in relation to the incident, Detective Senior Sergeant McGregor said.
