Emergency services have rushed to Bellambi, where a man has been stabbed in the chest.
NSW Ambulance paramedics are treating the man, believed aged in his 30s.
Paramedics were initally called to Bellambi Boat Ramp area. Emergency services have since converged off Rothery Road.
The Mercury understands the wounded man was conscious and able to walk between the two locations after he was injured.
"On examination we found a 35-year-old male with a stab wound to the centre of his chest," NSW Ambulance Inspector Norm Rees said. "Fortunately for the victim, it was just above the sternum and didn't penetrate any organs.
"We've assessed him, we've had our doctor attend the scene as well, they did some ultrasounds, and we've transported him for further treatment, but he's in a very stable condition.
"I suppose any stab wound's very serious. The lucky part is that it was over a bone, which didn't allow the penetration into the organs underneath. It could have been a completely different matter if they hadn't hit the bone."
The Mercury understands the man has been reluctant to provide police with any details of the attack.
He has been transported to Wollongong Hospital in a stable condition.
More to come.
