A WOONONA man has been charged after another man was stabbed outside Wollongong Hospital earlier this week.
Just before 9.30am on Monday, a 40-year-old man was sitting at a bus stop outside the hospital on Crown Street.
Police will allege that as a white Holden Commodore sedan drove past, and the 45-year-old male driver yelled out the window, before pulling into the hospital car park and getting out of the vehicle. It’s alleged he ran over to the younger man and stabbed him once in the back, before fleeing the scene in the Holden.
The injured man was briefly admitted to hospital, however, discharged himself before seeking treatment. It’s believed the two men were previously known to each other.
Officers from Wollongong Police District were notified and commenced an investigation.
About 1.30pm on Monday, detectives went to an address in Woonona and arrested the 45-year-old man. He was taken to Wollongong Police Station and charged with affray.
He will next appear before Wollongong Local Court on February 26.
