Woman remains in hospital after stabbing; man charged – Stanhope Gardens

A bedside court hearing will be conducted after a man was charged over the alleged stabbing of a woman during a domestic-related assault in Sydney’s north-west last night.

About 8pm (Monday 1 March 2021), emergency services attended Aberdeen Place, Stanhope Gardens, following reports a 46-year-old woman had been stabbed by a man known to her.

Police were told the pair were arguing in the street when the 48-year-old man stabbed the woman. A witness intervened and separated the parties before the man fled into nearby bushland.

The woman was treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics before being taken to Westmead Hospital, where she remains in a stable condition.

Officers from Quakers Hill Police Area Command commenced a search of the area and following a short foot pursuit, the man was arrested.

He was taken to Westmead Hospital, where he remains under police guard, and has subsequently been charged with cause wounding/grievous bodily harm to person with intent to murder (DV) and contravene prohibition/restriction in AVO (Domestic).

The Stanhope Gardens man has been refused bail and will appear at Mt Druitt Local Court by way of a bedside hearing in due course.
