About 8.30am (Tuesday 27 April 2021), a 43-year-old man was seated in a Subaru on McMasters Road, Blackwall, when a silver Holden Commodore pulled up beside the vehicle.

The younger man fled the scene in the Holden.

The 43-year-old was airlifted to Royal North Shore Hospital, where he remains under police guard in a serious but stable condition.

Brisbane Water Police District arrested four people a short time later – a 38-year-old man and three women aged 26, 36 and 42.

All four were taken to Gosford Police Station where the three women were released pending further inquiries.

The 38-year-old man was charged with wound with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and affray.

He was refused bail to appear at Gosford Local Court today (Wednesday 28 April 2021).
