Cyclist repeatedly slashed by African thugs
At 2:30am Wednesday morning, a woman describe as in her early 30s was riding along Harker St in North Melbourne when she was set upon by three persons of African appearance [2 male, 1 female], one of the males produced a blade demanding the woman's bike & phone, when she refused the thug repeatedly slashed the female victim across the arms, torso, face & neck.
The victim managed to ride her bike away from the attackers to nearby Flemington Rd where she was able to flag down a vehicle while bleeding profusely, the driver promptly called 000. The victim was then rushed by paramedics to the Royal Melbourne Hospital were she is still in a serious condition.
Police are yet to interview the victim as she has spent the majority of the day undergoing emergency surgery due to the severity of her wounds & loss of blood. The Embona Taskforce that was setup by the Victorian government & police to tackle the rising street crime problem in Melbourne [the refugee problem] will spend the coming days combing CCTV in hopes of identifying the attackers.
Shame on the Associated Press for deliberately leaving out that the attackers were ALL of African appearance.
