A 45-year-old man who allegedly killed a three-year-old boy in a unit at Riverwood in Sydney’s south on Wednesday has been identified as Nathan Vikatos, according to The Sydney Morning Herald (SMH).
NSW Police found the child’s body about 4pm on Wednesday after responding to a “concern for welfare” call.
Vikatos was seriously injured with what police suspect were self-inflicted knife wounds in the unit on Washington Avenue.
He remained under police guard in hospital on Thursday in a stable condition after surgery.
NSW Superintendent Sheridan Waldau said the apartment complex had now been declared a crime scene.
According to the SMH, police had been called to find Vikatos earlier on Wednesday over alleged domestic violence.
Police expect to charge him over the stabbing in the coming days.
