Two men flown to hospital with serious injuries after fight in Queenstown

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Queenstown News

Two men have been injured – one critically – during a fight between up to 15 people in central Queenstown.

Detective Senior Sergeant Malcolm Inglis said the fight happened on Camp St about 2.20am on Sunday after "some sort" of confrontation between two groups.

Two men received stab wounds and were flown to Dunedin Hospital.

One of the men was reported to be in a critical condition and the other had serious injuries.

Another man was hit by a bottle during the fight and may be injured, but was yet to make himself known to police, Inglis said.

A large number of people and vehicles were passing through the area at the time and police wanted to hear from anyone who saw or was involved in the incident.

Anyone with information should call police on 105, or can provide information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Inglis said police also wanted anyone who found a knife in central Queenstown to call them immediately on 111.
