Four stabbings in less than 24 hours

GUNS were swapped for knives in NSW trouble spots where police were called to four stabbings in 24 hours this week.

In Sydney's west, a 44-year-old man allegedly had his forehead slashed during a domestic fight at Merrylands on Thursday night.

A 39-year-old woman was charged with unlawful wounding.

Less than an hour later, in the nearby suburb of Westmead, a 30-year-old woman was discovered on the floor of her home with a stab wound to her chest.

She underwent surgery at the Westmead hospital where she remained in a serious condition on Friday night.

Police were looking for a man in dark clothing who was seen leaving the area.

At Guilford, also out west, a 42-year-old man was stabbed twice in the stomach when he refused to hand his bag over to a trio of robbers.

He was also taken to Westmead hospital in a stable condition.

On Friday morning police in the state's north charged a man over a knife attack outside a home at Wingham, near Taree.

A 42-year-old man was attending a party when he was allegedly struck in the face and eye-lid.

He was treated at the Manning Base Hospital where he remained in a stable condition.

A 34-year-old man has been charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
