A man has been stabbed in the chest multiple times at a Brisbane jewellery store.
Emergency services were called to KL Jewellers on Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley, about 4.15pm on Friday.
Paramedics treated a man, believed to be aged in his 60s, who had suffered stab wounds to his chest, face and neck, a Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman said.
He was taken to Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital in a serious condition.
The man is reportedly the owner of the store, although police are uncertain whether a robbery has taken place.
Detectives were having difficulty negotiating a language barrier, a police spokesman said.
One lane of Wickham Street remains closed and police have established a crime scene.
Neighbouring restaurant staff heard a fight coming from the store and called police, Channel Ten reported.
