St John paramedics attended and found the man in a critical condition. He was taken to Royal Darwin Hospital but pronounced deceased upon arrival. Within the hour, a 25-yearold female was taken to RDH with significant injuries to her stomach after she was attacked on Wearing Cres about 1km from the first incident. Sergeant Evans said the SUV was then driven to the Wearing Cres address before the alleged offenders fled. Investigators established a second crime scene at Wearing Cres with forensic and biology specialists inspecting the area. Kalymnos Dr between Karama Cres and Dulverton Ct was closed for most of Thursday as officers gathered evidence. Two men, aged 20 and 26, have been arrested and remain in police custody. A witness, who did not want to be named, said he helped the woman after she ran to his aid, saying she had stab-like marks all over her body and back. He described the weapon as being a serrated bread knife. Resident of Wearing Cres Stephanie Parry said a woman went to her father-in-laws house after being stabbed by her former partner on Wednesday night. Hes stabbed her, shes gone to my father-in-laws house, and shes called out for him to, you know, call police and emergency services, Ms Parry said. He (Ms Parrys father-in-law) said it was all done by midnight. The mother of two said she locked up her home, even padlocking the fence in an effort to keep her family safe. Were all just a little bit over the constant abuse and people rocking up at three oclock in the morning and yeah, its never ending. Another resident who did not want to be named said she had two dogs to protect her from any trouble. A number of residents of Wearing Cres say there has been a lot of commotion at the address in recent weeks. Sergeant Evans said the woman and the alleged offenders know each other. Its not clear what their relationship is. Police late on Thursday were yet to find the weapon involved and yet to determine whether the same weapon was used in both attacks. Officers were seen scouring both locations, including emptying industrial bins and stormwater drains. The arrested men were found separately at properties in Karama and Winnellie. The SUV was also found in Winnellie. Sergeant Evans said police had obtained CCTV but asked anyone with information to come forward and call police on 131 444 or Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000. A second crime scene was established at a residence on Wearing Cres, with both scenes believed to be linked. Forensic police attended the scene.
