Three teens charged after stabbing leaves man critically injured in Pyrmont

Three teenagers have been charged after a man was stabbed in the face during an alleged assault involving up to 10 males in Pyrmont late on Friday.

Police were called to the intersection of Pyrmont Bridge Road and Wattle Street just before 10.50pm following reports of an assault, and found a 36-year-old man with a stab wound to the face.

The man was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance crews and taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in a critical condition.

Local resident Paul Cochrane told Nine News he saw the victim lying on the street covered in blood.

"You could hear this ferocious thudding, punches, blows being landed," Mr Cochrane said.

"Walked up to the scene and saw a man laying there covered in blood, his face had clearly been cut, blood all over his hand, I wasn’t sure if he was alive at the time to be honest."

In a statement on Saturday, police said officers were told the man was injured during an assault by a group of up to 10 males.

Inquiries led police to arrest and charge three teenagers on Saturday.

A 15-year-old boy was arrested at a home in Eastwood and charged with affray and wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm. He was refused bail and was due to appear at Parramatta Children's Court on Saturday.

A 17-year-old arrested in Thornleigh and an 18-year-old arrested at a Wattle Street unit will face Parramatta Local Court on Sunday after each was charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

Investigations continue.
