A man who had been wanted by police in connection to a stabbing incident in Gowrie in October has been extradited from Tasmania to face an attempted murder charge in the ACT.
Ashleigh Wayne Wilson, 33, appeared in the ACT Magistrates Court on Saturday morning, but was not formally charged. He was remanded in custody and will next appear in court later this month.
The Richardson man was arrested in Bridgewater, Tasmania on Thursday and an extradition was granted later that day by the Hobart Magistrates Court.
Police will allege Mr Wilson attacked a 23-year-old man in the car park of the Erindale Scout Hall on Castleton Crescent. The alleged victim then fled to a service station on Benham Street, Chisholm.
Emergency services were called to the service station about 8.50pm on October 1. The man had stab wounds to his hands, legs and neck.
Paramedics treated the man at the scene before he was transported to hospital.
Officer in Charge of Criminal Investigations Detective Inspector Marcus Boorman warned that this investigation was far from complete.
"We do believe other people were involved in this incident and we urge them to come forward before we come knocking," Detective Inspector Boorman said in a statement on Saturday.
"We work closely with our interstate colleagues, and I would like to thank Tasmania Police for assisting with this arrest and extradition.
"ACT Policing will continue to track down offenders and place them before the court."
