POLICE will allege the 'near-fatal' stabbing of a 32-year-old man last month was the result of a long-running family feud.
Warwick man Nathan William Charles is charged with attempted murder over an incident that left a man with four stab wounds to his torso.
The alleged victim was rushed to Princess Alexandra Hospital after seeking treatment at the Warwick Hospital on August 27.
Charles, who remains in police custody, had his matter mentioned briefly in court yesterday.
It is alleged the victim, his partner and another man, drove to a Tooth St residence, where 28-year-old Charles and his girlfriend were sitting inside a car.
Police say Charles and the members of the other group were distant relatives and had been involved in a lengthy dispute.
It is alleged that shortly before the stabbing, the victim's girlfriend encouraged Charles to get out of the car and, when he did, a fight broke out between him and the group.
Police say the alleged victim and Charles fought and while the other man was on top of him, Charles stabbed him with a "small" knife.
The man was then driven to Warwick Hospital before being flown by LifeFlight to Brisbane, where he underwent surgery.
Charles was arrested by police the following day and charged with attempted murder.
He is due to remain in custody until his next appearance in the court, which has been scheduled for November 22.
