Two women have been charged after another woman was discovered with stab wounds in the boot of a car in the NSW Southern Highlands.

The 24-year-old victim was found with wounds to her knee, thigh, and forearm after a tip-off from a concerned driver on February 3 who saw a hand waving from the rear tail light section of a white Holden sedan.

Highway Patrol officers stopped the car just before midday on the Hume Highway at Berrima, with the woman taken to Liverpool Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Two other women – 24 and 18 – were arrested and taken to Southern Highlands Police Station.

The 24-year-old woman was charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, abduction occasioning actual bodily harm, driving while disqualified and drug possession.

She was refused bail and will appear in Picton Local Court on Thursday.

The 18-year-old woman was charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, abduction occasioning actual bodily harm and driving without a licence.

She was also refused bail and will also appear in Picton Local Court on February 4.
