Teenager behind bars over Sydney hair salon stabbing

A teenager remains behind bars after he was accused of murdering another young man in a stabbing at a Sydney hair salon.

Fredon Laith Botrus, 18, didn’t apply for bail and it was formally refused by magistrate Robert Rabbidge during an appearance at a Parramatta court on Saturday.


Police say his alleged victim – a 20-year-old man – died at Liverpool Hospital about 5pm on Friday, more than four hours after he was stabbed at a hair salon in Bossley Park.

Court documents identified the alleged victim as Alfredo Isho.
