ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an assault which occurred in the Erindale shopping precinct last night (January 2).
Around 11.30pm a 17-year-old male youth was walking along McBryde Crescent, Wanniassa when he was approached by two men.
The two men, who initially appeared friendly, asked the victim for a cigarette. After telling the men he didn’t have any cigarettes, a physical altercation ensued. During the altercation one of the men stabbed the victim in the forearm.
