Woman repeatedly stabbed in face during horrific dispute with neighbour

A man has been charged with attempted murder after horrifically stabbing a woman inside her unit at Belmont overnight.

The shocking attack occurred at a block of units on Belstone Avenue following an ongoing neighbour dispute between a 64-year-old man and 65-year-old woman.

Police allege that last night the man knocked on the front door of the woman’s unit and after a short discussion he walked inside.
