About 6.40pm on Tuesday (6 November 2018), a 50-year-old man, was driving west along Canterbury Road at Belmore in a grey Jeep Wrangler, with a 25-year-old male passenger.
Whilst stopped at the intersection of Chapel Street, two men got out of a white car and approached the Jeep.
The passenger was punched through the open window, before he got out and was involved in a scuffle with the two men.
The driver got out and intervened before the two men returned to the white car and fled.
During the scuffle, the passenger suffered multiple stab wounds and was driven to Canterbury Hospital.
Officers from Campsie Police Area Command were notified and attended the hospital.
The injured passenger was transferred to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital where he remains in a stable condition.
