A heroic builder rushed to intervene as a woman was stabbed in the chest with a kitchen knife at home in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

Just after midday on Monday, a 46-year-old woman was stabbed at a two-storey home at Dover Heights – with a builder hearing her cries for help and rushing to her aid.

Peter, a builder from Trident Design and Construction, said the woman managed to get a hold of the knife and throw it towards the street.

Peter then managed to grab the knife before the alleged stabber demanded the weapon be handed over.

Peter said he kept his cool, moving backwards as the alleged offender closed in – before eventually the man calmly turned and walked away, hopping in a white Audi and driving off.

NSW Ambulance Inspector Giles Buchanan said paramedics managed to stabilise the woman and she was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital in a critical but stable condition.

‘This was a very traumatic scene to arrive at with a significant, life threatening stab wound,’ Mr Buchanan said.

‘Paramedics administered IV fluids, stemmed the bleeding and provided pain relief to stabilise the patient.

‘Stabbing wounds are generally confronting incidents and this patient has suffered a very serious injury.’
