A man is in custody and Police investigations are continuing following a violent assault in New Windsor this morning.

At around 10.41am, Emergency services responded to a report of a person who had been stabbed at a dairy on New Windsor Road.

A number of people in the store at the time intervened and managed to apprehend and restrain the offender.
