DETECTIVES are investigating whether a stabbing which has left one elderly man in intensive care and another facing a serious criminal charge was the result of bad blood over a small cash loan.

The alleged victim, 66, was rushed to John Hunter Hospital for emergency surgery after stumbling out of his Housing NSW unit in Stockton with knife wounds to his chest, abdomen and back about 8am yesterday.

Police have praised two nurses who were attending to another Maitland Street resident when they saw the injured man and tried to stabilise him as paramedics rushed to the scene.

Two police officers who were nearby assisted the man before officers took a 67-year-old man into custody at another Stockton residence.

He was charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and refused bail to appear in Newcastle Local Court today.

Maitland Street was blocked to traffic for most of the day as specialist crime scene officers worked on gathering evidence at the scene.

The alleged victim lives in a single storey unit where blood was spattered in a front doorway.

A plastic chair, which was sitting in the shaded front lawn of a residence across the road from the alleged victim’s house, had blood covering it after the man was sat down as his injuries were attended to.

His bloodied shirt was lying nearby.

Newcastle City detectives are investigating whether a dispute over a small loan may have prompted an argument.

The alleged victim, who was lucid at the scene before his condition deteriorated following blood loss, was rushed to hospital for emergency surgery.

He was listed as being in a serious but stable condition in the intensive care unit yesterday afternoon.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
