A juvenile remains in custody over a domestic violence incident yesterday morning (April 3).
A police report on the incident did not identify the sex of the alleged assailant or the victim.
Police allege that around 8am the juvenile became involved in an argument with their partner at a Ballina residence.
The juvenile then picked up a 30cm serrated knife, followed their partner into the kitchen and stabbed them in the abdominal area.
The resulting deep wound caused bleeding.
The victim was taken by ambulance to Lismore Hospital for emergency surgery.
The juvenile later attended Lismore Hospital carrying the knife. The juvenile handed the knife to a nurse, and police were called.
Lismore Detectives took the juvenile to Lismore Police Station where they were charged with reckless wounding.
The juvenile has been refused bail and will appear in Lismore Children’s Court today.
