Police have been called to a birthday party at a Sydney pub where three young men were allegedly stabbed.
Three young men are undergoing surgery after they were found on a Sydney street suffering from stab wounds in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Police alleged the men, aged 18, 19 and 20, attended a 22nd birthday party held at a Redfern pub on Saturday night just hours before they were involved in a violent incident.
Emergency crews were called to Cleveland Street in Redfern around 3am on Sunday following reports of a disturbance at the front of a licensed establishment.
A number of people were questioned by the police and were removed from the scene, without any charges being laid.
Less than an hour later, emergency services were called to a second location in the city center “some distance away” where they found the three young men suffering from stab wounds.
Four paramedics and a specialist medical team with an intensive care doctor and a paramedic attended the scene.
An eighteen-year-old man was taken to the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in critical condition with stab wounds to his abdomen.
A nineteen-year-old man was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital in critical condition with stab wounds to the chest.
While a 20-year-old is in stable condition at Prince Alfred Hospital with a stab wound to his arm.
Police alleged the incident was a ‘targeted attack’ and believe the people knew each other.
“Something happened after the party resulting in the alleged stabbing,” Superintendent Rod Hart of South Sydney Police District Command told reporters on Sunday afternoon.
Police have identified a number of nearby CCTV cameras and officers are in the process of contacting businesses to gain access to the view.
The alleged perpetrators are still at large.
A crime scene has been established and an investigation is underway into the circumstances surrounding the incident.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
