A woman’s body has been found in a home in Hobart Street Bulli.
Just after 5.30am a 46-year-old man went to Gladesville Police Station with a stab wound to his chest. As a result police went to Hobart Street a short time later where they found a 52-year-old woman’s body inside.
Speaking from Bulli Detective Acting Inspector Darren Kelly told media the man informed police of the incident.
“They were approached by a male at the front counter who indicated he’d committed an offence in this area,” he said.
The Bulli address is known to police, and it is understood the man and woman are brother and sister.
“At this stage we believe there is a relationship,” he said.
“However, due to the fact that the lady hasn’t been formally identified, we can’t comment further at this stage in relation to that.”
The man was rushed to Royal North Shore Hospital in a serious condition, where he remains under police guard.
Police say his stab wound appears to be self-inflicted.
Strike Force Peel, comprising officers from Wollongong, Lake Illawarra and Ryde Local Area Commands with the assistance of the Homicide Squad, has been established to investigate the incident.
