A man is fighting for his life and another has been charged after allegedly stabbing a man with a samurai sword southwest of Sydney.
Emergency services were called to a service station on the Hume Highway, Pheasants Nest, about 11.45pm on Saturday and found a 34-year-old man with a stab wound to his chest.
He was taken to Liverpool Hospital where he underwent surgery and remains in a critical but stable condition.
Detectives arrested a 28-year-old man at Thirlmere on Monday night and charged him with reckless wounding and common assault.
Police will allege in court that the two men, who are known to each other, were involved in a fight on Great Southern Road, when the injured man was stabbed with a samurai sword.
The Bargo man was granted strict conditional bail to appear at Picton Local Court on Tuesday.
