Stabbed Kiwi confronts attacker in court

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 8/09/2016

A New Zealand man who almost died after he was stabbed in Melbourne says his attacker's cowardly lies about what happened has "rubbed salt into his wounds".

Dwayne Michael Byrne was found guilty earlier this year of attempting to murder New Zealander Steen Locke during a random attack at St Kilda pier in February 2015.

"The fact that this coward lied has rubbed salt into the wounds," Mr Locke told a Victorian Supreme Court pre-sentence hearing on Thursday.
