Bomber's star released from hospital after stabbing

ESSENDON midfielder Nathan Lovett-Murray was released from hospital yesterday after being stabbed in the arm at a house in the Victorian suburb of Reservoir late on Tuesday night.

The 30-year-old needed minor surgery on his arm and could return to training as early as Monday.

Victoria Police arrested a 22-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy at another residence in Reservoir yesterday morning.

Lovett-Murray, who was set for a recall to the Bombers' line-up for Saturday night's 'Dreamtime at the G' clash with Richmond, issued a statement after his release from hospital.

"Thank you to everyone for all the support, I am very grateful for all the well wishes. All is well, I'm feeling good and I will now rest up for the next few days and look forward to getting back to training early next week," he wrote.

Earlier in the day, Essendon CEO Ian Robson told reporters he understood the incident was a domestic dispute that happened at the house of Lovett-Murray's girlfriend.

"It involved an ex-boyfriend who we understand has a restraining order against him," Robson said.
