Moe stabbing

A 48-YEAR-old man has been found dead in Newborough after he stabbed two colleagues at a Moe accounting firm on Monday morning.

Police said the man died of self-inflicted wounds at a “bushwalk track” in a residential Newborough area following an assault at his place of work on Kirk St, Moe about 9am.

It is believed the man used a knife to inflict multiple upper body stab wounds on two co-workers, aged 58 and 31, before leaving in a vehicle.

Both victims were transported to Latrobe Regional Hospital. The 58-year-old remains at LRH and is in a stable condition following surgery, while the 31-year-old was airlifted to Alfred Hospital in Melbourne in a critical condition.

Latrobe Local Area Commander, Inspector Dean Thomas believed the attack to be out of character for the assailant and that no altercations had previously been reported at the business.
