NSW: Man stabbed in head during elevator tiff

A MAN has been charged with stabbing another man in the head during a fight inside an elevator at Surry Hills on Thursday morning.

Police say the two men, aged 31 and 43, became involved in an argument while in a lift of a Belvoir Street unit block just before 1.30am.

It’s alleged the argument escalated into a fight, during which the younger man allegedly stabbed the older man in the head before fleeing.


The injured man was rushed to St Vincent’s Hospital in a serious but stable condition.

Detectives established a crime scene and, following investigations, last night arrested a 31-year-old Concord man at Burwood Police Station.

He was charged with wound person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
