About 2am on Monday (14 September 2015), a 59-year-old man met a 45-year-old man, who was known to him, on Goulburn Street, Liverpool.

An altercation took place during which the younger man allegedly stabbed the older man in the abdomen.

He was taken to Merrylands Police Station where he was charged with attempted murder.

He was refused bail to appear at Fairfield Local Court today (Friday 18 September).
