Man's ear partially severed in Sydney stabbing

A 23-year-old man has been charged following a stabbing in the front yard of a house in Sydney’s southwest.

A 30-year-old man was taken to Liverpool Hospital with several puncture wounds and a partially severed right ear after the incident in front of a Macquarie Fields property about 6.30pm on Tuesday.

“The younger man fled the scene after the older man received stab wounds to his face and back,” NSW Police said in a statement.

Police attended a home in Maple Place and arrested the younger man following a struggle.
