A man’s dead body has been found in a factory in Sydney’s south-west. The police were summoned at the scene of the discovery – a complex on Pine Rd, Yennora – at about 7:30 a.m. on Monday.

Detectives from State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad have also arrived at the scene. The area is now a crime scene.

As reported by AAP (via Sky News), the death is being treated as suspicious. The identity of the man has not been revealed by the authorities yet.

The area has been cordoned off by the authorities, according to Jon-Ray Sakr. “Something going on at Pine Rd, Yennora.. Cops and camera crew everywhere. Blocked off what looks to be a warehouse,” Sakr wrote on social media. The investigation into the matter is ongoing.

The discovery comes in the wake of a Sunday night incident wherein a 74-year-old man was stabbed in the leg and stomach. The incident, which occurred in a Sydney home, has left the man wounded.

As reported by AAP (via Yahoo 7), a woman, 55, has been arrested in connection with the crime. She is being questioned by the police.

Following the incident, which occurred at a unit in Dulwich Hill, the victim was transported to the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. He currently remains in serious but stable condition.

On Sunday, two children sustained significant injuries after falling off of a window of a third-floor apartment in Sydney’s southwest. The victims – a girl, 5, and a boy, 3 – are believed to have fallen through the window’s flyscreen.

Emergency services were summoned to the scene of the incident at about 9:00 a.m. on Sunday. The girl was transported to the hospital in a critical condition. The boy was in serious but stable condition.
