WOMAN STABBED DURING DOMESTIC DISPUTE

A 48-year-old woman remains in hospital after she was stabbed during a domestic dispute near Newcastle last night.

Just before 7pm, police were called to a house on Moresby Street at Wallsend.

It’s believed the woman was involved in an argument with her partner when she was stabbed in the back with a steak knife.

She was treated at the scene by paramedics and required stitches for two stab wounds.

Detectives have spoken to a 42-year-old man, but he was released without charge.

It’s expected he’ll be served with an apprehended violence order today.
