A policewoman’s estranged husband has allegedly chased her down and stabbed her in the neck after she tried to end their marriage.
Constable Tina Davis, 46, ran for her life through Stanhope Gardens in Sydney’s north-west at about 8pm on Monday before Simon Allan Davis allegedly knifed her outside his home.
The couple separated in January after more than 20 years of marriage and three children, but it is understood she visited his home to tell him their relationship was over for good.
Police say the 48-yea-old accused her of seeing other people and allegedly threatened to kill her when she refused to hand over her phone.

CCTV filmed the woman sprinting from a parked car and him allegedly chasing after her.
Further footage showed a man walking shirtless across the road towards nearby parkland before being pursued by police officers.
Neighbour Matt Forster told 7 News that he saw a man standing over a woman, who was lying on the ground.
‘As I approached he stabbed her two or three times in the shoulder area,’ he said.
‘She was screaming obviously for him to stop and get off, I basically called out and screamed for him to stop as well.
‘Luckily I distracted him a touch she then was able to get onto all fours trying to get up.’
Other witnesses said they heard cries for help in the moments before the alleged attack – with one saying he heard loud banging on his screen door.
He allegedly stabbed himself before fleeing the scene.

The mother-of-three was treated on the scene before she was taken to Westmead Hospital in a stable condition.
Davis was found and arrested soon after, and is accused of threatening to kill another female officer during the arrest.
He was taken to the same hospital and placed under police guard, before he was charged with causing wounding or grievous bodily harm to a person with the intent to murder and for breaking his restraining order.
The father will appear at Mt Druitt Local Court in the coming days.
