Westfield Carousel Stabbing On Friday
The Westfield Carousel shopping center in Perth was on lockdown Friday after a stabbing incident. According to authorities, a young man was slashed in the face after a fight broke at about 3:30 PM local time. The victim, 20 years old, was taken to the hospital while police look for the attacker.
Police said that the attacker fled the scene, but left behind the knife, which has been secured. “The knife has been secured at the scene,” a police spokesperson said. “Inquiries remain ongoing to locate the other male.”
Police said there was no ongoing threat, but the Westfield center was under lockdown. Visuals from the scene showed a massive police presence in the area. Meanwhile, social media users - mostly locals - reported that the incident took place around Myer.
“We urge the public to stay away from the area until more is known,” police said. Multiple ambulance crews have been sent to the shopping center.
One person said that shoppers were locked down in the complex and 'told to stay quiet'. Another one added that there was 'blood on the ground' and 'lots of police'.
Shoppers in the complex told Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) that stores were re-opening . Some stores have chosen to remain shut for the rest of the day.
Westfield Carousel is about 12 kilometers south of Perth's CBD. It is one of the biggest shopping centers in the metropolitan area.
