A terrifying and bizarre attack where a woman allegedly pulled an axe in a Sydney convenience store and assaulted two customers has been captured on video.
CCTV footage, obtained by news.com.au, shows the attack unfold at the Enmore 7-Eleven, in Sydney's inner-west, early Saturday morning. A young blonde woman wearing a black singlet and skate shoes wanders into the store at 2.19am, allegedly carrying a long-handled axe. She walks to the back of the store, then joins the line at the counter behind a woman and a young man carrying what looks like a pie and sauce.
The man in line notices the younger woman, gesturing to her as she approaches. She stands quite close to him, and they chat seemingly amicably for about 30 seconds. As the woman at the front of the line pays for her purchases and leaves, and the young man turns to walk to the counter, the younger woman suddenly raises the axe over her head and allegedly brings it down on the man.
She allegedly fells him in one blow, then turns to the other woman standing at the door of the shop, hitting her twice.
The blonde woman then steps over her victims, walking out of the shop. She does not appear to take anything from the shop with her. The man stands up, blood pouring from his nose.
On Saturday, police confirmed a 32-year-old man and a 43-year-old woman were injured in the attack. The man suffered a serious head wound, while the woman was left with more minor injuries. Both were taken to hospital in a stable condition. Police said "the parties involved are not known to each other".
In a statement, police said the woman, believed to be aged in her 20s, was found a short distance away and arrested. She was allegedly found with the axe in her possession. She was taken to hospital for assessment, but was later released to police and charged with wound person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, and cause grievous bodily harm to person with intent.
She was refused bail, and appeared at Parramatta Bail Court on Sunday. She was again refused bail, and will appear before court again on Thursday.
