ATTEMPTED MURDER CHARGE IN BLACK MAN STABBING
A 28-year-old Yokine man in Perth WA has been charged with attempted murder after another man who was stabbed repeatedly narrowly escaped death yesterday afternoon.
A 33-year-old man underwent life-saving surgery after his heart had stopped beating and he was revived on the way to hospital. His condition was considered serious but stable.
Police were called to a house on Walga Court, near Yarruk Way in Yokine about 2pm after a fight allegedly broke out between two men of African descent.
One man was allegedly stabbed and left bleeding on the road, where he was discovered by emergency services.
Network Seven reported the injured man was “declared dead” after his heart stopped beating, and was then revived by paramedics on the way to hospital.
The Yokine man was refused bail and will appear in Perth’s Magistrates Court this morning.
