A man will appear in court today charged over the alleged stabbing of another man in Cambridge Park last night.

About 6.10pm on Friday, emergency services were called to a house on Barry Street, Cambridge Park, after reports of a domestic-related assault.

Upon arrival, police located a 48-year-old man being treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics in the front yard of a house, for a stab wound to the shoulder. He was taken to Westmead Hospital in a stable condition.

Officers from Nepean Police Area Command spoke with a 43-year-old man at the scene, before he was arrested and taken to Penrith Police Station.

A crime scene was established, and detectives commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Following inquiries, detectives charged the younger man with ‘wound person intend to cause grievous bodily harm (DV)’ and ‘destroy or damage property’.

Police will allege in court the two men – who are known to each other – were involved in a physical altercation inside the house, before the older man went outside to his vehicle.

While seated in his vehicle, the younger man allegedly threw a glass bottle at the car, causing it to break.

He then approached the vehicle and allegedly stabbed the man through the lowered driver side window, before stabbing the vehicle multiple times.

He was refused bail to appear before Parramatta Bail Court today.
