Accused stabber to face Gympie court today
A GYMPIE woman accused of stabbing her "on again, off again" boyfriend after a brawl on a busy Gympie street will face Gympie Magistrate's Court today.
Teleaha Edward Crystal Gallaher, 18, is charged with assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm by maiming, disfiguring or disabling following an incident on Horseshoe Bend in late May.
Police allege Ms Gallagher's and her partner were having an argument on the street on May 28, when her partner grabbed and threw her handbag to the ground.
She is then alleged to have used a 15-20cm paring knife to attack the man as he turned his back and started to leave the area, the Brisbane Supreme Court heard on Monday during the woman's successful bail application.
