Cleaner ‘stabs’ woman, 92, in brutal home attack
A 92-year-old woman has allegedly been stabbed and assaulted by her cleaner in a vicious house attack in Sydney's inner west.
Emergency services were called after a personal panic alarm was activated from an address on Holden Street, Ashbury at around 10.45am on Wednesday.
They discovered the woman bleeding heavily from her scalp and abdomen, police said.
She was taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in a serious condition and had emergency surgery for face and body injuries, plus several stab wounds.
A 35-year-old woman who police allege was working as a cleaner in the victim's home was later arrested after a vehicle stop on Griffin Parade, Illawong.
She was taken to Sutherland Hospital for an ankle injury and was due to appear at Parramatta Bail Court today charged with attempted murder and wound person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
