Two men will face court today charged over the alleged stabbing of a man at Cliftleigh. 

About 1.50am on March 5, emergency services were called to a home on Shalistan Street following reports two men had been stabbed during a physical altercation.

On arrival, police found a 23-year-old man with stab wounds to his chest and head.

A short time later, police were notified after a 27-year-old man attended Maitland Hospital suffering stab wounds to his chest and neck.

Around 1.30pm on Thursday, strike force detectives attended a home on Shalistan Street and arrested two men – aged 23 and 66.

Both men were taken to Cessnock Police Station, where the younger man was charged with attempted murder and wound with intent to murder.

The older man was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm in company and accessory after the fact to attempted murder.

Both men were refused bail to appear at Cessnock Local Court on Friday.
