A second 17-year-old – also from Mooroobool – arrived at the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said both boys had sustained stab wounds, with preliminary investigations indicating they had attended a birthday party prior to the street disturbance.

Police are appealing for information.

Three males – aged 17, 18 and 28 – have been arrested for obstructing police as part of investigations into the disturbance.
