A WOMAN has been repeatedly stabbed in the face with a pair of scissors by a man in southwestern NSW.
The 30-year-old woman is in hospital after an argument with a 35-year-old man at a home in the Riverina in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Police said a "vicious attack" followed, with the man allegedly dragging the woman through the house by her hair and biting her.
She was then stabbed repeatedly in the face with scissors, police said.
The attack continued after the woman fled the home, with the man chasing her and allegedly smashing her head on a footpath.
Several people came to the woman's aid and she was taken to Batlow Hospital.
She is expected to require surgery for her injuries.
The man was arrested and would be charged over the attack on Saturday, police said.
