At about 7.30pm (Monday 5 October), emergency services were called to a unit on Bay Street, Tweed Heads, after reports of a physical altercation.
Officers attached to Tweed/Byron Police District attended, along with NSW Ambulance paramedics, and found a 38-year-old man suffering a stab wound to the shoulder.
A 34-year-old woman was found nearby with a laceration to her lip.
The man was taken to Gold Coast University Hospital, where he underwent surgery. He remains in a critical, but stable condition.
The woman was taken to Tweed Heads Hospital for treatment before she was arrested and conveyed to Tweed Heads Police Station.
She was charged with wound person intend to cause grievous bodily harm (DV) and was refused bail to appear in Tweed Heads Local Court today.
