A 20-year-old man who allegedly stabbed three people in Redfern earlier in the year has been extradited to NSW by police, after being arrested in Victoria. The man will appear in a Sydney court today after police filed to the Melbourne Magistrates court for his extradition back to NSW.

The man has been charged with stabbing three men a short distance from the Norfolk Hotel in Redfern. Police say they were called to attend to a 22nd birthday party at the venue, before being alerted to the men who had sustained stab wounds at 3:45am on May 29.

An 18-year old was found unconscious with stab wounds to his stomach, a 19-year-old man sustained wounds to the chest, and a 20-year-old wounds on his arm. Two of the men were described to be in critical condition, and all three were taken to hospital.

All three men have since made a recovery and been released from hospital.

Police travel to Victoria to make arrest 

The 20-year-old man charged with the stabbing was arrested in Melbourne earlier in the month, after officers from the South Sydney Police Area Command made extensive inquiries and received help from Victoria Police with the investigation.

Police were granted extradition yesterday, and the man was taken to Mascot police station where he has been charged with three counts of wound person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

The man is set to appear in Downing Centre Local Court today after being refused bail.
