GLASSES found at the scene of a stabbing in Cobram on the weekend could be key to finding the offender, detectives say.
Police released a photo of the black-framed glasses yesterday as they step up their hunt for a man who broke into a Dudley Park Road home and stabbed a man inside.
Cobram police Detective Sen-Constable Jason Williams asked anyone who knows the owner of the prescription glasses, who would most likely have bruises on his face after the victim fought back, to help with the investigation.
It follows the release of an image on Sunday of a man police wish to speak to about the crime.
The man broke into the home at 9.30pm and crept past the victim, who was with friends, and started gathering items to steal.
Police said the victim, 51, disturbed the offender and was stabbed in the neck and face.
He was flown to The Alfred in Melbourne on Saturday for surgery and was in a stable condition.
