A 29-year-old Fijian national identified as Ratu Serutawake stabbed his female partner to death while their 13-month old son slept in another room of a bungalow at the Sydney Lakeside Holiday Park at North Narrabeen early yesterday.

According to theaustralian.com.au online, his relatives raised the alarm when Ratu Serutawake called them in a distressed state at around 4.30am.

Northern Beaches crime manager Inspector Craig Wonders said the relatives found the 22-year-old woman on the floor of the cabin with stab wounds to her chest. Police and the paramedics were later called but could not revive the woman.

Police said the couple had been together for a long time and an argument "about shopping" allegedly led to the stabbing.

Serutawake was arrested at the scene and taken to Dee Why police station to be interviewed. He was later charged with murder and refused bail to appear before Hornsby Local Court today.

The couple's infant son was placed in the care of relatives. The woman's name has not been released because the police are yet to trace and notify her relatives.

The couple had been living in the home for a year-and-a-half.
