A man will appear in court tomorrow charged with attempted murder following a domestic related stabbing on the Central Coast overnight.

About 9pm (Saturday 13 May 2023), emergency services responded to a property on the Pacific Highway, Lake Haven, after reports a woman had been injured.

Officers from Tuggerah Lakes Police District attended along with NSW Ambulance paramedics, locating a woman at the intersection of Lake Haven Drive and Stratford Avenue suffering multiple stab wounds.

Police have been told the woman was injured after being involved in an altercation with a man – known to her – in the driveway of the Pacific Highway property.

When neighbours intervened, the women ran off and the man allegedly smashed the windows of the women’s vehicle before also fleeing.

The 56-year-old woman was treated and taken to John Hunter Hospital where she remains in a serious but stable condition.

Police established multiple crime scenes and following a search of the area, a 68-year-old man was arrested at a nearby home on Holly Close, where he had allegedly broken into the premises and caused extensive damage with a hammer.

The man was taken to Wyong Police Station and charged with attempted murder (DV), cause wounding/grievous bodily harm to person with intent to murder (DV), break and enter house - destroy property, destroy or damage property (DV) and three counts of contravene prohibition/restriction in AVO (DV).

He has been refused bail to appear at Wyong Local Court tomorrow (Monday 15 May 2023).
