Sydney Man Stabbed During Road Rage Attack
Police are appealing for witnesses following a terrifying road rage attack in Sydney’s south west this week that left a man in hospital after being stabbed repeatedly.
According to a police report, a 50-year-old man was driving along Canterbury Road at Belmore in a grey Jeep wrangler along with a 25-year-old male passenger, at about 6:40pm on Tuesday.
While the car was stopped at the intersection of Chapel Street, two men allegedly got out of a white vehicle and approached the Jeep.
The passenger was punched through an open window before he got out of the car and was involved in a scuffle with the two men.
The driver then got out of the car and intervened before the two men returned to the white car and fled the scene.
The passenger received multiple stab wounds during the scuffle and was rushed to Canterbury Hospital.
Officers from Campsie Police Area Command were notified of the incident and attended the hospital to investigate.
The injured 25-year-old man has since been transferred to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital where he remains in a stable condition.
The driver was also treated at Canterbury Hospital for facial injuries and has since been released.
Police have been told that the fight broke out following an earlier traffic incident on Canterbury Road.
Officers have since located a white Toyota Camry in Punchbowl yesterday. The vehicle was seized and will be forensically examined.
Police are now appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident or may have dash cam footage of the altercation to come forward and contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
