Bathurst man refused bail over stabbing murder

Bathurst man refused bail over stabbing murder

A Bathurst man has been refused bail in local court today after being charged with murder, following yesterday’s stabbing in Rocket Street.

The 40 year old was arrested by police yesterday and has fronted Bathurst court briefly this morning, where his bail was formally rejected.

Police and ambulance responded to a disturbance report at a block of flats opposite Centennial Park in Rocket Street just before 8:30am yesterday.

When they arrived they found a 49 year old victim with stab wounds to the chest, and he later died at the scene.

Chifley Local Area Command Officers say the victim was known to the attacker, but have not revealed any further details about their relationship.

The attacker is yet to be named, and court has been adjourned until Monday, March 11.
