A verbal argument between two fathers escalated into a stabbing in the St Clair Shopping Centre carpark.
A schoolyard scrap between girls at St Clair High School has escalated into a fight between their fathers.
Yesterday afternoon two men, aged 35 and 41, were waiting at the St Clair Shopping Centre carpark for their children to finish school.
A verbal argument started between the men which quickly turned into a physical fight.
A large crowd gathered to watch as the men traded blows.
The older man then allegedly stabbed the younger father a number of times in the back and arm, NSW Police said.
The 41-year-old left and the 35-year-old went to Nepean Hospital where he was treated for stab wounds, which were not considered life-threatening.
The older man went to Blacktown Hospital for injuries to his face, and he was arrested three a short time later.
