Police were called at about 10pm to a report that a group of men were arguing outside The Old Punch Bowl pub, during which time a 46-year-old man was stabbed in the abdomen.

He was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and has since been discharged.

A police spokesperson said a knife was recovered during a search of the area but is yet to be tested forensically to establish if it is linked to the stabbing.
