A man has been charged after another man was left with critical injuries following an alleged assault on the state’s Central Coast.

About 12.30pm today (Sunday 16 May 2021), emergency services attended Myola Road, Umina Beach following reports of an assault.

NSW Ambulance paramedics treated a 34-year-old man, at a nearby location.

He was flown to Royal North Shore Hospital where he remains in a critical but stable condition.

Officers from Brisbane Water Police District established a crime scene and commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident.

A 40-year-old man was arrested at the scene and taken to Gosford Police Station, where he was charged with common assault (DV).

Police will allege in court that the two men – who are known to each other – were involved in an argument before the older man assaulted the younger man.

He was given conditional bail to appear before Gosford Local Court on Tuesday 25 May 2021.
