A woman has been arrested after a man was stabbed to death at a home in Sydney’s trendy eastern beaches.

Sirens blared and a huge police presence flooded the quiet street of Murrabin Avenue, in Matraville, about 6.15pm on Tuesday.

Emergency services arrived to find a severely injured man in the residence.

Paramedics treated the male stabbing victim, but he died at the scene.

NSW Police said a woman was arrested nearby and is assisting with inquiries.

A crime scene was established and an investigation has begun.

Images and footage obtained by Daily Mail Australia show a woman being apprehended by officers.

The woman was hand-cuffed and sitting on a red brick retaining wall and was surrounded by a group of police.

She was wearing ripped black leggings and a grey hoodie. On her feet were white socks caked in dirt underneath, and no shoes.

It’s not clear what the relationship is between the woman and man or whether the incident was domestic violence related.

A resident of the street told the Daily Mail that police were still at the scene at 11pm and appeared to be “looking for something”.

Officers from Eastern Beaches Police Area Command, assisted by detectives from the NSW Police crime command’s homicide squad are involved in the investigation.

The latest incident comes amid a recent spate of deadly knife crime in NSW, including the Bondi Junction mall stabbing rampage and the attack on a priest in Wakeley.

Those incidents prompted the NSW government to give police the power to search people in public places for knives.

The state has also witnessed a shocking trend of domestic violence deaths, including the murder of Molly Ticehurst. Her death prompted tougher bail laws in DV cases.

Anyone with information in relation to the Matraville incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
