Boy, 12, denied bail after Sydney stabbing

A 12-year-old boy who allegedly stabbed a 10-year-old boy in Sydney has been denied bail.

The boy, who cannot be named, is accused of stabbing the younger boy in the torso during a robbery on Saturday afternoon in Waterloo.

The boy appeared before the Parramatta Children's Court on Sunday, where the magistrate denied his bail.

The boy is charged with assault with intent to rob, causing wounding.

The victim was taken to Prince Of Wales Children's Hospital in a stable condition, and has since been discharged.

Three boys were arrested shortly after the stabbing, but two of them, aged 16 and 12, were released without charge.

Several family members or supporters of the accused attended the brief hearing in Parramatta, with one telling reporters the boy was "going good".

The accused will next appear before Bidura Children's Court on May 23.
