Griffith City Council general manager Brett Stonestreet has been transferred to Sydney’s St Vincent’s Hospital following treatment for multiple stab wounds last week.

Mr Stonestreet was flown out on Saturday night requiring specialist treatment after suffering multiple stab wounds allegedly at the hands of his son on Wednesday morning.

Griffith City Council mayor John Dal Broi said he and Mr Stonestreet’s family are thankful for the care he received at the base hospital.

“He was looked after and cared for well at the Griffith Base Hospital. The staff have done an excellent job,” Cr Dal Broi said.

“He was in need of more specialist care, so he’s been flown to Sydney.”

Mr Stonestreet is still expected to make a full recovery.

Matthew Stonestreet, 29, faced court last week after he allegedly stabbed his father on Wednesday morning.

He has not yet made a plea and his matter was adjourned until Wednesday, April 26.
