A plumber is due to face court accused of stabbing a colleague on a construction site at Blackalls Park.

Police say the 39-year-old had issues with work completed by his workmate at the Faucett Street site on Monday afternoon, with the pair having a heated conversation over the phone.

The 33-year-old man returned to the site where an argument between the pair became physical before the older man allegedly stabbed his younger colleague in the arm with a knife.

He was treated at the scene before being taken to the John Hunter Hospital for further treatment.

Police stopped the older man’s vehicle at Boolaroo where he was arrested.

He’s been refused bail to face Toronto Local Court today (Tuesday 31 August 2021) charged with wound with intent and affray.
