Pub fight ends in stabbing
A LISMORE man was allegedly stabbed in the neck by his housemate overnight after the pair agreed to go to the Lismore Workers Club carpark to sort out their differences.
Richmond Local Area Command Inspector Nicole Bruce said the two men aged 27 and 28 met at the carpark about 9.30 pm as the 27-year-old was not happy how the other man was treating his girlfriend.
Insp Bruce said police allege the 27-year-old went to the carpark armed with a knife.
"Police allege the 27-year-old hit the 28-year-old man over the head with a bottle before a scuffle ensued," she said.
"As a result one man received a stab would to the back of his neck."
Insp Bruce said the 27-year-old man was arrested a short time later and charged with reckless wounding and common assault.
He was granted conditional bail to appear at Lismore Local Court in December.
The 28-year-old man was taken to Lismore Base Hospital where he received several stitches to the wound.
