Australian Police Say Mass Stabber at Sydney Mall Was Targeting Women

HeadlineApr 15, 2024

In Australia, police say the man who went on a deadly stabbing rampage at a Sydney shopping center on Saturday was likely targeting women. Five of the six fatal victims were women. The one man killed by the assailant was a security guard who attempted to stop the attack. The stabber was eventually shot and killed by police. Some 20 people overall were stabbed, including a 9-month-old baby girl. The baby survived, but her mother did not. The mass killing at the Westfield Bondi Junction has rattled Australia, where mass casualty events are rare.
