A man has been extradited from Victoria and will appear in court today, charged after allegedly stabbing three men during a brawl in Redfern.
About 3.45am on Sunday 29 May 2022, emergency services were called to Cleveland Street, Redfern, following reports of a brawl.

A 19-year-old man was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital in a critical condition with injuries to his chest.

The men have all since been released from hospital.
Following extensive inquiries from South Sydney Police Area Command and assistance from Victoria Police, earlier this month a 20-year-old man was arrested in Preston, Victoria, and was remanded in custody.
Yesterday (Tuesday 5 July 2022), NSW detectives with assistance from specialist police from ODIN, travelled to Victoria where they sought and were granted the man’s extradition to NSW at Melbourne Magistrates court.
