Woman Accused Of Striking Man With Samurai Sword

A woman has been charged after allegedly striking a man with a Samurai sword during a dispute in south-west Sydney. 

The woman, 29, and the man, 23, left an apartment on Charles Street in Liverpool about 11:30pm on Saturday.

Police said the pair had a "further confrontation" outside the unit before the man threw a brick at the woman, who then produced a Samurai sword.

The man then ran to speak with an acquaintance, at which point the woman  approached him and allegedly swung the sword at his head.

As the man raised his arm to protect to protect his head, the blade lacerated his forearm.

Police said the woman walked away, while the man ran to the Hume Highway, where he flagged down an ambulance. He was taken to Liverpool  Hospital in a stable condition.

Officers found the woman in a nearby unit a short time later and arrested her.

She was later charged with wounding a person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and was refused bail to appear in court on Sunday.
