CCTV released in hunt for Sarina taxi driver stabber
POLICE are desperate to identify a man who may be connected to the stabbing of Sarina taxi driver John May.
The 62-year-old was hospitalised in a critical condition on Friday, March 6, after he was found close to death on Brewers Road.
Mr May is the husband of Mackay Regional Councillor Karen May.
"I was horrified, I was just beside myself that… this had taken place," Cr May told the Daily Mercury four days after the assault on her husband.
"John was just doing his job, driving the cab as he normally does."
Police have released CCTV footage of a man they wish to speak to and also a photo of a blue backpack that may be connected to the crime.
The wanted man, or anyone who knows him or recognises the backpack, should contact police as soon as possible.
Crimestoppers can be contacted on 1800 333 000.
