A man accused of a road rage stabbing in Sydney will face court later this week to be sentenced.

Ahmad Dabboussi on Wednesday appeared at Campbelltown District Court, where his lawyer AJ Karim told Judge Jennifer English he had a "very limited" criminal history prior to the incident.

Mr Karim said the 28-year-old Punchbowl man's actions had not caused "ongoing complications" to the victim and that while the "consequences could have been grave", the wound itself was "not life-threatening".

He also said Dabboussi had not demonstrated a "continuing attitude of disobedience".

Police allege a 50-year-old driver and his 25-year-old passenger were attacked when their four-wheel drive was stopped at a Belmore intersection in November last year.

Two men emerged from a white car and the passenger was punched through an open window, police say.

It's alleged the passenger then got out of the 4WD and was stabbed multiple times during a scuffle with the men who subsequently fled the scene.

Dabboussi was charged with recklessly wounding the 25-year-old passenger and pleaded guilty.

Prosecutor Alex Brown rejected Mr Karim's assertion Dabbousi began to use drugs after an accident he suffered when he was 14 had changed his behaviour.

She said he used drugs to "fit in with friends" and enjoyed it.

Dabboussi will face Campbelltown District Court again on Friday to be sentenced.
