Both men charged were released from Liverpool hospital on Sunday. A 23-year-old man was charged for the stabbing, and another, 23, was charged with affray.

It's believed the brawl began when a woman arguing with her partner in a quiet cul-de-sac went to ask her neighbours for help.

It was reported two neighbours came to the woman's assistance and were confronted by the man and several of his friends.

Superintendent Peter Lennon, commander of Fairfield Local Area Command, said the situation became "doomed" when members of the group picked up weapons.

"His family are ruined, and the community have now got to cope with this. It's very, very tragic and stupid behaviour," Superintendent Lennon said.

"They've opened his abdomen and caused him to die as a result of that injury."

As two blood-splattered cars were taken away, neighbours described the "scuffling" and "screaming" they heard the night before.

"I was getting ready to go to bed and I heard these horrible thumping noises," neighbour Terry Corcoran said.

"It sounded to me like somebody was really slamming a car door, and it happened about a dozen times."

Both men have been refused bail and will face Fairfield Local Court on Monday. 

Anyone with information on the incident is urged to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
