A 21-year-old man has been charged after he was arrested by police for allegedly stabbing a woman in the head and torso with a paint scraper.

The woman (48) was found with up to 12 wounds to her head and torso and was rushed to St Vincent’s Hospital. Her injuries are considered non-life threatening.

Police believe the woman was in an argument with a man known to her before he allegedly stabbed her with a paint scraper.

One of the men told him to ‘get off and don’t fucking move’ while another held the back of the man’s shirt.

Dressed in black sweatpants and a white t-shirt while barefoot, blood could be seen on the ground next to where the man was apprehended.

He was taken to the Prince of Wales Hospital under police guard.

Smoke alarm tester Tom Artemjev was driving along Frenchmans Road when he witnessed the alleged attack.

“I pulled my handbrake in the middle of the road, jumped out of the car, a guy in an orange construction shirt and I chased after him to make sure nothing happened to him,” he said.

The group ran several hundred meters from the block of flats where the alleged incident took place to keep up with the man before forcing him to the ground.

“They just took him down and sat with him while the police came.”
