The occupants of the vehicle fled the scene before police arrived. They are believed to be two Asian men in their 20s. The driver was wearing a black hoodie, while the passenger wore a grey hoodie and jeans.

Detective Inspector Kim Caddy said: “We know that incidents of this nature will no doubt cause some concern amongst local residents, however, I would like to reassure the public that we continue to do all in our power to apprehend those that perpetuate violence in our communities.

"We are appealing to anyone who was near the two locations between 8pm and 8.30pm and may have witnessed the stabbing and collisions, or the events leading up to and following either incident.”

Anyone with information or dashcam footage is asked to contact the police on 101 or online, quoting CAD 409 of June 10.
