A fatal stabbing took place at a Victorian vineyard this weekend after a fight broke between two groups of foreign workers.

Police were called to the Cheshunt Winery in Victoria’s King Valley on Saturday night to find the body of a man in his twenties who apparently died from stabbing wounds. Police also found two men suffering from multiple stabbing wounds who were later air lifted to Wangaratta Hospital. The identities of the dead and injured men have not been released, though it is believed they are all Malaysian nationals.

Police launched a massive manhunt in the region on Sunday to locate a 58-year-old Malaysian man who disappeared from the vineyard after the stabbings. He was found with a head injury and treated at Wangaratta Hospital. The unidentified man was questioned by police and released without charge on Monday.

Police were also on the lookout for 10 men of Asian appearance who fled the crime scene in a white van. The men turned themselves into country police on Sunday and are assisting police with further enquiries.
