A man has been hospitalised after being stabbed in a domestic violence-related attack at Sydney’s Central Station.
The 48-year-old man suffered wounds to his back, chest and neck in the incident on Saturday afternoon.
He was taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
NSW Ambulance Inspector Dominic Wong said the man was bleeding heavily from multiple torso and head wounds when paramedics arrived just after one pm.
“The medical team worked quickly to control the bleeding and get the patient to hospital,” he said in a statement.
“NSW Police and Sydney Trains staff did a great job in securing the scene and providing first aid.”
Another man, aged 72, who was treated at the scene for minor cuts, was taken into police custody.
NSW Police say the pair are known to each other and the stabbing is linked to domestic violence.
The older man, from South Penrith, was subsequently charged with cause wounding/grievous bodily harm to person with intent to murder (DV).
He was refused bail and is due to appear in court on Sunday.
