NSW man charged with murder after fatal stabbing

A man has been charged with murder after a stabbing at Camperdown overnight.

About 9.20pm emergency services were called to the intersection of Salisbury Road and Church Street, following reports of a man being assaulted.

On arrival, NSW Ambulance Paramedics treated a 51-year-old man suffering multiple stab wounds; he was taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital but he died a short time later.


The man is believed to be from Earlwood.

A 28-year-old man was arrested at the scene and was taken to Newtown Police Station.

He has now been charged with murder, and two counts of being armed with intent to comment a serious indictable offence.

He was refused bail to appear in Newtown Local Court later today.

Police do not believe the men knew each other.
