Time running out for stabbing suspect

·1-min read

A police manhunt continues for the final suspect wanted in relation to a fatal stabbing in Brisbane after a third man was charged over the attack.

Kyle Martin, 24, remains on the run five days after the death of Levi Johnson, who was stabbed outside a gym car park on Monday.

Two cars boxed in his vehicle before four men got out and started smashing his windows. Mr Johnson ran away but two men caught up with him and he was stabbed multiple times.

Police warned members of the public not to approach Mr Martin as he was "potentially armed and dangerous".

"I think time's quickly running out for him," Detective Superintendent Andrew Massingham told reporters late on Friday.

"The offence is horrific. It is brutal.

"We have three in custody. I'm confident within the coming days we'll be able to place the fourth one into custody."

It's believed Mr Martin could be hiding out locally but authorities are on alert in case he attempts to flee Queensland.

On Saturday, Thomas Myler, 35, was charged with one count of murder (serious organised crime).

He was cornered by police during a raid at a home in Wellington Point, in the city's east, on Friday night after a tip-off from a member of the public.

A woman, believed to be Myler's girlfriend and earlier in his company, has not been charged but on Friday detectives said they would investigate whether she or anyone else was involved in helping him avoid detection.

Meanwhile, anyone assisting in harbouring Mr Martin could be charged with being an accessory to murder, which carries a possible sentence of life imprisonment.
