A man has been charged following a stabbing at Lismore on Tuesday, November 6.

About 4.30pm, a group, including a 22-year-old man, visited a property on Cathcart Street, Gillards Hill.

It’s believed an altercation took place with an occupant of the property, which allegedly resulted in a 22-year-old man being stabbed to his upper torso and hand.

The group, including the injured man, fled the scene and drove to Lismore Base Hospital. The man remains in a stable condition awaiting surgery.

Officers from Richmond Police District attended the property and established a crime scene.

A 20-year-old man was arrested and taken to Lismore Police Station.

He was charged with reckless wounding and refused bail to appear at Lismore Local Court today (Wednesday 7 November 2018).
