Detectives from the Cumberland Police Area Command have cordoned off the street and have established a crime scene.

Their main line of inquiry at this stage is whether or not the incident is domestic-violence related, as officers attempt to piece together what unfolded.

A police spokeswoman was unable to provide more details on the incident, other than to confirm the man had sustained critical injuries to his upper body.

Anyone with any information is urged to contact Granville Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000
