Police in New South Wales have arrested a man over an attack on a family who were out for a walk with their elderly grandmother.
The 57-year-old man was arrested in Melbourne, south-west of Sydney, at around 3pm on Wednesday after a woman in her 70s called police reporting a stabbing at her property.
“We have not seen anything quite like this,” Detective Inspector Jason Furlong said.
“It’s a very serious incident.”
Detective Inspector Furlongs wife and grandmother were not injured in the incident.
“I was on my phone, and I saw the lady, she was laying on the floor, her hand was up, her eyes were rolling, her mouth was open,” Ms Furlings son, Mark, told the ABC.
“She was screaming and crying.”
Detective Sergeant Mark Furlons wife, Catherine, and her granddaughter, Catherine Deen, are in hospital after being attacked by a man in their Sydney home.
