A man is dead and a girl is in hospital after a "domestic-related" altercation in the northern Sydney suburb of Chatswood.

Police were called to a home on Nicolson Street shortly before 10am to reports a girl had been stabbed.

Officers found the 14-year-old being assisted by a member of the public for stab wounds to her neck. She had run to her neighbours for help and the man had fled the scene.

Minutes later, police were called to a Chatswood shopping centre where a 52-year-old man had severe injuries.

He died at the scene.

The girl was taken to Sydney Children's Hospital where she remains in a stable condition.

Police say the man and girl were known to each other and are investigating both crime scenes.

The incident is being treated as "domestic-related".
