A woman who allegedly stabbed her former partner with a hunting knife has been denied bail.

Penrith Local Court heard the man was forced to take refuge under a trampoline when his de-facto partner of 20 years allegedly unleashed, stabbing him to the left wrist and right forearm.

Moments earlier, the woman had called the man and threatened to attend the house and kill him, police allege.

Arming herself with a hunting knife, she allegedly stabbed the complainant’s tyres before lunging at him when he attempted to take the knife.

The woman, who cannot be named to protect the victim’s identity, then stabbed a number of holes in the trampoline before harming herself.

The frenzied attack is believed to have taken place in front of the couple’s 17-year-old child.

Her matter was adjourned to July 26.
