Police have arrested and charged two men over the stabbings outside Noir Sydney on Oxford St in late July.

Emergency services attended the incident on Oxford St shortly after 3 am on Saturday 29 July 2023.

NSW Police said today they will allege a group of men armed with knives approached a 25-year-old man and stabbed him multiple times. A 34-year-old man who came to the aid of the younger man also suffered stab wounds.

Both men have since been released from hospital.

Strike Force Jacob

Officers from Surry Hills Police Area Command commenced an investigation into the stabbings under Strike Force Jacob.

Earlier this month, they released CCTV footage of three suspects.

On Thursday, with the assistance of Queensland Police, investigators arrested a 21-year-old man in Redbank Plains, Queensland.

After detectives successfully applied to extradite the man to NSW, he was escorted to Sydney on Friday.

Police charged the man with causing wounding/grievous bodily harm with intent to murder, reckless wounding – in company, and affray.

Also on Friday, investigators arrested an 18-year-old man at a home in Lalor Park at about 6.35 am.

Police charged him with the same offences as the 21-year-old man, as well as possessing an unauthorised pistol, and not keeping a firearm safely.
