A man has been stabbed to death in a “targeted” attack in a western Sydney nature reserve.
Police say they were called to a reserve on Russell Street in Emu Plains about 8am on Thursday after reports a man had been stabbed.
The man aged in his 20s died at the scene, and a crashed vehicle was found nearby.
Nine News reports the incident was the result of a road rage attack.
Nepean Police Area Command Crime Manager Jason Pietruszka later said police believe the man had been dead for “a number of hours” before he was found and that the attack was “targeted”.
"The male was seen to be suffering various injuries consistent with a stab wound," he said.
A person known to the man alerted officers, Detective Pietruszk said, adding that two men known to the victim are helping police with their inquiries.
Police are now appealing for anyone with information or with dashcam footage from the area between 4am and 5am to come forward.
