A WOMAN will face court next month after police were alerted to an alleged stabbing at Marrickville last Sunday.
Police were called to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital about 2.45am on Sunday, after a 28-year-old man arrived at the emergency department seeking treatment for a stab wound.
After making inquiries, officers arrested a 33-year-old woman at the hospital; police will allege she returned a positive result when breath tested. She was breath tested because police allege she drove the man to hospital.
The woman was taken to Newtown Police Station where she underwent a breath analysis and returned an alleged reading of 0.200.
She was charged with driving with a high-range PCA.
Inquiries are on-going into the circumstances of how the man came to be injured; a number of items have been seized for forensic examination from a home in Addison Road, Marrickville.
Police have been told the man's injuries are not considered life-threatening.
Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at crimestoppers.com.au.

Travel safely during holiday bid
ROAD users are being urged to slow down and travel safely during the school holidays.
More police will be on roads targeting drivers for dangerous behaviours, including speeding, drink and drug-driving, mobile phone use, and not wearing seat belts.
Acting commander of the Traffic and Highway Patrol, assistant commissioner Michael Corboy said that while everyone was excited about the holidays, it was not worth the risk of speeding or driving while tired in order to get to your destination.
"We're asking you to manage your trip, slow down, take regular breaks, avoid distractions, and ensure everyone in the vehicle is wearing a seatbelt," he said.
"It is much more important to arrive safely, than not to arrive at all."
