A man, 50, is due in court today on an attempted-murder charge following a stabbing during an argument between neighbours at Leumeah.

Emergency services were called and the victim was taken to Liverpool hospital where he remains in a critical condition.

Campbelltown police officers attended and established a crime scene.
