A WARRNAMBOOL man has been remanded in custody charged with stabbing a neighbour.
Dallas Robertson, 37, of Hoddle Street, unsuccessfully applied for bail in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
He was remanded in custody until April 10 charged with recklessly causing serious injury and other assault-related offences.
Detective Sergeant Chris Asenjo, of the Warrnambool police crime investigation unit, said that police received a report of a stabbing at a Hoddle Street home about midnight last Friday.
A neighbour went to Mr Robertson's home where there was an argument which escalated.
Police allege Mr Robertson produced a syringe filled with an unknown substance and a knife and threatened to stab the complainant “in an eye ball”.
The complainant suffered a large cut to a hand, which bled profusely.
He was taken to the Warrnambool Base Hospital where he underwent surgery for the significant wound to his hand.
On Tuesday police executed a search warrant at the Hoddle Street home and arrested, interviewed and charged Mr Robertson.
A 38-year-old woman was also arrested and later released from custody.
