An ISIS-inspired stabbing attack took place today (yesterday, if you’re in Australia) in Melbourne.
There’s no indication in this news story of the ethnicity of the victim, but given that he was renting the perp a room, I’d be willing to bet he’s a fellow culture-enricher. Maybe even a Hindu from the subcontinent, which would explain the murderous rage of a new arrival from Bangladesh.
From ABC (Australia):
Woman Charged Over ‘Islamic State-Inspired’ Stabbing in Melbourne
A 24-year-old Bangladeshi woman will appear in court, charged over an “Islamic State-inspired attack” following a stabbing incident at Mill Park, in Melbourne’s north on Friday.
Police were called to a home in Callistemon Rise about 4:20pm on Friday where they found a 56-year-old man who had been stabbed in the neck while he was asleep.
The man will undergo surgery today but his injuries were not life-threatening.
His young child was present at the time but was not injured.
Police allege the woman is a Bangladeshi national who travelled to Melbourne on February 1 on a student visa.
She was renting a room at the man’s home while she was studying.
Ian McCartney, the acting Australian Federal Police Deputy Commissioner, said police are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.
“We will allege this was a stand-alone, Islamic State-inspired attack, designed to cause harm to our community,” acting Deputy Commissioner McCartney said.
Since September 2014, when the national terrorism threat level was raised, police have charged 85 people, including this woman, following 36 counter-terrorism operations around Australia.
