Published: 12 October 2017


Four men have been arrested after a 50-year-old man was stabbed while walking down a suburban road in Sydney’s north last night.

Officers were called to Spencer Road in Mosman just before 11pm Wednesday after the man was approached by two men and stabbed, sustaining wounds to his arm and back.

A few hours later, police stopped a vehicle on Miller Street in North Sydney and arrested four men ranging in age from 23 to 30.

Authorities are also investigating three other armed robberies in the lower north shore area over the past few days.

On Monday night a 15-year-old boy was stabbed and had his phone and wallet stolen while he was walking from North Sydney Railway Station towards Mount Street in North Sydney.

Less than an hour later, at 11.55pm, a 28-year-old man was attacked by two men on Bay Road, Waverton, and had his wallet, phone, iPod and shoes stolen.

Both were taken to Royal North Shore Hospital.

On Tuesday, at about 10.45pm, another 28-year-old was approached by three men on Russell Street, Wollstonecraft, and had his wallet, phone, laptop and headphone stolen, but was not injured.
