A teenager attacked a man in Australia: With a kitchen knife

A teenager attacked a man in Australia, in a suburb of Pert, triggering a search by police officers.

The teenager attacked a man in a suburb, had a large kitchen knife, and for no reason, decided to perpetrate the violent act.

This is the second incident without rational explanation that has occurred in Australia in recent weeks.

In this regard, the Australian Police shot dead the armed teenager after he attacked a man in the suburb of Perth this Saturday night, May 4, according to the Western Australian Premier, Roger Cook.

The teenager attacked a man in Australia, was described as a 16-year-old Caucasian male, was armed with a knife, Cook said during a press conference on Sunday.

WA Police Commissioner Col Blanch said local police received a call this Saturday night around 10:10 from a man indicating he was “going to commit violence.”


Blanch said police received another call from a person minutes later indicating a man with a knife was running.

Police immediately responded to that call, Blanch said, and three officers were dispatched.

When officers arrived at the scene, they were confronted by the teenager, who was alone and holding a “large kitchen knife.”

Officers challenged him to drop the knife, to which he refused, rather than rushing to the Police. Two Tasers were deployed and when they failed to subdue him, the third officer “fired one shot and fatally wounded the man,” Blanch said.

Police discovered after the shooting that the teen had stabbed and injured a middle-aged man prior to his confrontation with police.

The teenager attacked a man in Australia, but the victim is currently in the hospital in serious but stable condition with a back wound, Blanch said.

Police knew the teenager prior to the incident, Blanch said, as he “was part of an online radicalization program for the past few years.”

“We are dealing with complex issues with this 16-year-old, both mental health issues and online radicalization issues,” Blanch said.

The program focused on covering violent extremism for those exhibiting concerning behavior, Blanch said.

Blanch said police received multiple calls before and after the incident from members of WA’s Muslim community who had concerns about the individual.

“I want to thank the members of the Muslim community who did that because it allowed us to quickly identify who this individual was and respond as quickly as we did,” Blanch said.

In a statement released Sunday about the teenager attacked a man in Australia, Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said, “We are a peace-loving nation and there is no place for violent extremism in Australia.”

The incident follows the stabbing last month of a priest and a bishop in a Sydney church.

Police arrested a 16-year-old boy for the attack, which they described as a terrorist act.
