Australia: Muslim screams Allahu-Akhbar and lunge at police with a knife in Sydney

The majority of the media reports completely avoid to mention that “the man” was a Muslim who screamed the victory cries Allahu-Akhbar before lunging in a lone-wolf attack. Only a few reports mention this fact. Shot by a woman he’s not going to be granted his 72 virgins either. The excuse for this “strange behavior” is that he had “psychiatric” problems. They all do. You got to be truly insane to continue to be a part of that religion even after you relocate to a country where you can easily abandon Islam. Jinn “possession” and insanity is high within the Muslim community. Every failure is blamed on Jinns.



Westfield Hornsby shooting: Knife-wielding man ‘shouted Allahu Akbar’ before he was shot in front of shoppers – as police defend their tactics that saw three elderly female bystanders hit by gunfire 

  • Two police officers shot at man with a knife at Sydney’s Westfield Hornsby
  • The man, 23, escaped from a psychiatric ward on Wednesday, police said
  • Footage shows the dramatic moments on Thursday just before noon
  • Three elderly women were injured by police bullets, as was the man
  • They are all in a stable condition and the man is also under police guard 

A witness claims the man who had a carving knife at a shopping centre and was shot by police had earlier said ‘Allahu Akbar’.

The term is Arabic for ‘God is great’ but has become associated Islamic State after extremists yelled ‘Allahu Akbar’ when committing terrorism.

Police have defended shooting Jerry Sourian, 23, and inadvertently injuring three elderly women, instead of using tasers to diffuse the situation outside Westfield shopping centre at Hornsby in north-west Sydney.

Footage obtained by Nine News revealed police had asked him to drop the knife before the man appeared to lunge at them. Two police officers then fired several shots.

The first words spoken by a female officer who fired shots was to one of the women injured, telling her: ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry.’

The three women, aged between 60 and 80, are in a stable condition in hospital, as is the 23-year-old man.

The woman was one of two police officers who shot at the man who was barefoot and carrying a knife

A man with the same name is licensed as a decorator and painter in Hornsby, Daily Mail Australia can reveal.

He was seen laying on the ground as bystanders rushed to the aid of the women caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Police have confirmed the 23-year-old man did not injure anyone with the knife.

Just minutes after the shooting, the female officer who shot him was consoled by other police who put their arms around her.

Witness James Yeom, 35, owns the Gelatissimo store in front of the fountain where the shooting took place and said he saw a female officer shoot the man.

‘Police were obviously asking for him to drop the knife and they did that several times and he did not react,’ Mr Yeom, who called the police, told Daily Mail Australia.

‘He looked like he was just standing and holding his knife and that’s when they pulled out their guns and pointed them at him and asked him to drop the knife.

‘He still didn’t drop it… I had to step away a few steps so I didn’t get shot.

‘I heard two shots, ‘boom, boom’.’

Mr Yeom said he thought ‘the guy is probably on the floor’ and returned to where he had been standing.

‘I looked back and he [the man] was still running around. Instead there were innocent people on the floor and I thought ‘something’s not right’,’ he said.

‘This female officer shot him and he went down and he dropped the knife.’

Mr Yeom said the officers did not put away their guns immediately and continued to point them at the man until they got closer to him and kicked the knife away before putting away their guns.

A critical incident has been launched after a police shooting in Hornsby.

Assistant Commissioner Denis Clifford said the officers fired a round each at the man who was wounded several times.

‘Unfortunately some bystanders were also injured with either bullet or fragment wounds,’ he said.

‘Three ladies, aged between 60 and 80. All those people are being treated in various of hospitals in a stable condition.

Witnesses said the 23-year-old man was barefoot and appeared 'really depressed' before the shooting

‘The person of interest is under police guard.’

The three women are in a stable condition and recovering in hospital

Mr Clifford said the man was known to police and had fled from a psychiatric treatment centre.

He said tasers were believed to be available to the officers but they made a snap decision ‘in a life and death situation’.

The man was ‘babbling and incoherently ranting’ outside the shopping centre before he approached police, according to reports.

Witnesses said he was ‘barefoot’ and appeared ‘really depressed’.

Peter Clemenson tweeted ‘gunshots @Westfield @Hornsby please stay out of the area guys’.

Mr Clemenson told Daily Mail Australia ‘at least 3 shots [were] fired, people were screaming and running away from the fountain area’.

Three women were injured by police officer. One of the officers who fired shots is pictured being comforted. She told one of the women injured: 'I'm sorry, I'm sorry' 

Witness and butcher Adam Stratton told 9News: ‘I’ve never seen anything like it. Watching all these people run was pretty scary… There were three pretty loud gunshots.’

‘It’s still pretty crazy out here. It’s not inside – it’s outside in the sunny area’.

Another witness, Genevieve Smith, told Daily Mail Australia an ‘older lady’ had been shot in the leg.

‘There was a lot of blood but she is still conscious and there were another two people on the ground,’ she said.

‘They have blocked everywhere around the fountain off and the bank is in lockdown.’

People at the scene told of going about their day – having coffee or lunch – when the incident occurred.

Another witness, David Allars, wrote on Facebook: ‘So was sitting having a coffee at Hornsby mall when I heard 3 shots go off about 50m from where I was and all these people started screaming and running.

The man was still running after police bullets mistakenly struck three women, witnesses said

‘Apparently somebody had a knife. Crazy.’

Emergency services were called to Westfield shopping centre in Hornsby about 11.50am on Thursday after reports of a man was armed with a knife.

On arrival, officers located the man and attempted to speak with him.

Following a confrontation, a number of shots were fired by police.

As a consequence four people have sustained various injuries and have been taken to hospital.

A Critical Incident Team will now investigate all circumstances surrounding the incident, including the discharge of a police firearm.

At this stage it is not known what has caused the confrontation.

That investigation will be subject to independent review.

No further details are available at this time however police are calling for witnesses to come forward.

Police are not looking for any other offenders.

  1. I live in Australia and all the reports failed to mention that this was a religious based attack, very convenient… the media defends Islam once again.

  2. Can you imagine how bad the knife wielder felt when he found it was not allah, but Jesus, at the other side? At least he got to join mohamdead on the other side of the gulf. What a shock to find out that God doesn’t like jihad. As I always say, islam is fascism disguised as religion.
