A SYDNEY man has been charged with savagely beating his 60-year-old ex-partner over the head with a glass bottle before stabbing her twice in the chest during a terrifying domestic dispute over the weekend.
Police say the 64-year-old man forced his way into his former partner’s Prince Street home at Picnic Point about 1am on Saturday morning.
The woman, who was asleep at the time, told officers she woke to find her estranged partner standing by her bed, armed with a bottle.

It’s alleged the man used the bottle to beat the woman over the head before using it to stab her twice in the chest.
Covered in blood, the woman managed to run to a neighbours home where she called for help.
She was taken to Liverpool Hospital where she remains in a stable condition with what police say are non life-threatening injuries.
Scores of police swooped on the area and, after a brief search, managed to locate and detain the man who was allegedly found sitting in the woman’s car parked a short distance away on Carinya Road.
After complaining of feeling unwell, the man was transported to Bankstown Hospital where he was assessed under police guard and released about 11.30am.
He was then taken to Bankstown Police Station where he was questioned by detectives before officially being charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
Refused bail, he was scheduled to appear before Parramatta Bail Court today.
