A 26-year-old man accused of stabbing another man in Lismore on Tuesday was refused bail in the Lismore Local Court yesterday.

The man, Shane Ohia, is charged with wound with intent and will appear in court again on January 4,  2016.

The alleged victim, a 52-year-old Lismore man, remains in Lismore Base Hospital after being treated for a wound to his leg.

Police allege the 52-year-old man was walking along Dalziell St in Lismore when ambulance officers driving past saw he had a large cut in his right leg and took him to hospital.

Richmond Local Area Command Inspector Bill McKenna said shortly after the older man was admitted, a 26-year-old man visited the hospital with unrelated injuries.

He was admitted, assessed and later arrested and conveyed to Lismore Police Station where he was charged.

Insp McKenna said police executed a search warrant of an address in Dalziell St and found a knife and crime scene.

Police allege the older man went to the address where an altercation broke out about 12.30pm on Tuesday, resulting in the victim receiving the injury to his leg.

The accused was refused bail and remains in custody.
