POLICE are appealing for public assistance as they continue to investigate how a man was injured after being found with serious stab wounds in the state's north last year.

About 6.50pm on Tuesday  December 3 2019, a 60-year-old man attended a store on Grafton Street, Lowanna, and spoke with a man and a woman known to him.

The pair noticed the 60-year-old had stab wounds to his chest and abdomen and contacted emergency services.

The man was treated at the scene before being airlifted to Gold Coast University Hospital for surgery.
