An Irishman wanted to enter Australia for the brutal stabbing that allowed a man with a severed ear to enter Australia, despite jail time for the death of another victim in 2013.
Officers are looking for Patrick Farrell, 29, after victim Oliver Solan was left in a pool of blood in a hallway in a Randwick apartment building in east Sydney on August 29.
Patrick Earle, 23, and girlfriend Katie Aileen Murtagh, 26, have already been charged with the alleged assault.
Police allege that Farrell was part of a group involved in the attack on Mr. Solan.
He is also wanted for an attack on a man in Matraville last November.
The hunt for Farrell comes after he was imprisoned for three years in Ireland in 2013 for the violent death of 20-year-old Andrew Dolon before moving to Australia.
Patrick Farrell, 29, (pictured) is wanted for the August 29 attack on Oliver Solan, as well as a separate one-stone attack in Sydney in November 2019.
Neighbors found victim Oliver Solan, 30, barely conscious in a hallway of an apartment building on Young Street in Randwick, east Sydney, around 8:40 PM on August 29.
Mr. Solan was left with a severed ear and a pierced spleen that had to be removed later.
Earle, Murtagh and Mr. Solan had been drinking together at the couple’s house on the night of the alleged stabbing.
An argument ensued between the two men, with Mr. Solan reportedly being the first to attack Earle, causing injuries to his arm.
Earle suffered a dislocated arm and cut his head before reportedly reaching out to his friend John Dunlea asking for help.
Around 8:30 PM, Mr Dunlea, along with two other Irishmen, Patrick Farrell and Christopher Morrison, arrived at the apartment complex where Murtagh let them in.

Mr. Solan was subsequently stabbed to death several times.
Evidence presented to the Mullingar Circuit Criminal Court during Farrell’s case showed that the victim reached out and begged ‘please don’t hit me’.
The footage showed the convicted killer beating the biomedical student twice, severely injuring him and dying in hospital shortly after.
NSW police have called for Farrell being wanted for an alleged attack in the beer garden of a Matraville hotel in November, where a 56-year-old was knocked unconscious.
Patrick Earle, 23, and his girlfriend Katie Aileen Murtagh, 26, have both been charged with the alleged brutal attack by a man in a unit in Randwick, Sydney’s eastern suburbs, on August 29.
Mr Earle’s 26-year-old girlfriend, Katie Murtagh, was also charged in the Aug. 29 incident
