A 22-year-old woman will face Lismore Court today charged over an alleged stabbing of a 22-year-old man in Casino on Saturday morning.

The man was taken to Casino Hospital where he was treated for wounds to his face and arm and was later released.

About 6.55am, police were called to a unit complex on Small Street following reports of a stabbing.

On arrival, they allegedly found a woman running from the scene and attempting to climb a fence.

Police were able to stop and question her.

Officers then found the 22-year-old man inside a unit with minor stab wounds to his face and arm.

He was treated at the scene by ambulance paramedics and taken to Casino Hospital.

Following police inquiries at the scene, the woman was arrested and taken to Casino Police Station.

She has been charged with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and served with a provisional apprehended violence order.

The woman appeared at Lismore Local Court yesterday, where she was refused bail to face the same court today.
