A man has been refused bail after a woman was found with multiple stab wounds inside a Sydney unit block.
The 45-year-old woman is fighting for life after the alleged domestic violence-related assault at Surry Hills in inner Sydney.
She was discovered injured at the bottom of a staircase in the Goodlet Street unit block on Saturday morning.
Paramedics moved her to St Vincent's Hospital for treatment on stab wounds to her back and leg, internal injuries and multiple facial fractures.
She remains in critical condition.
David Kristopher Sharp, 58, faced Parramatta Bail Court on Sunday charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
The Waterloo man did not apply for bail and it was formally refused during the brief hearing.
He is due to next face court on August 10.
