Man charged after alleged stabbing at Liverpool

Detectives have laid charges following an investigation into the alleged stabbing of a man at Liverpool earlier this month.

About 7pm on Friday, November 6 , emergency services were called to a home at O'Brien Street following reports a man had been stabbed by a man known to him.

Officers from Liverpool City Police Area Command attended and located a 36-year-old man with a serious stab wound to his hand.

Police were told the man was stabbed with a meat cleaver by another man, before he fled the scene.

The injured man was taken to hospital for treatment and has since been released.

Following extensive inquiries, detectives arrested a 41-year-old man at Smart Street, Fairfield, about noon on Tuesday, November 17.

He was taken to Fairfield Police Station and charged with wounding a person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and reckless wounding.

The man was refused bail to appear at Liverpool Local Court today.
