Just after 11pm on Friday (September 9, 2022), emergency services were called after reports a woman had been stabbed. Police were told a man allegedly gained access to a business in Dubbo after smashing the front glass door with an unknown object.

Once inside, he allegedly stole keys and attempted to drive a vehicle through the front security gate of the property before it became stuck, and he exited the vehicle.

"A short time later, a 61-year-old woman arrived at the scene before the man allegedly pushed her to the ground and stabbed her multiple times," police said.

Police allege the man then fled the scene on foot.

The woman was treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics before being taken to Dubbo Base Hospital in a stable condition with stab wounds to her arm and back. The injuries are not considered to be life-threatening.

Officers from Orana-Mid Western Police District established a crime scene, and after a short search of the area with the assistance of the Dog Unit, attended a home in Dubbo.

A 19-year-old man was arrested and taken to Dubbo Police Station where he was charged with break and enter dwelling-house with intent (steal), break & enter house destroy property and aggravated robbery with wounding/grievous bodily harm.

The man was refused bail to appear at Dubbo Bail Court today.
